The complexity of website content (as measured by the
HTTP Archive) continues to increase. Meanwhile, the number of
mobile browsing devices is increasing at more than 25% each year. Due to their limited processing power, memory, storage and network
bandwidth these devices pose new challenges in terms of web
performance as sites become more complex. To date, the approach to
solve these issues has been to create mobile versions of web sites
with limited content and simplified layout. This talk will present a
new way we are looking at the mobile browsing challenges at We will present data about site latency among various
classes of devices and usage of mobile versions of the site. Much
of the presentation will focus on technical approaches to dramatically
reduce web site latency for this class of users.
