    Being in Australia, you can usually add 2-4 seconds on top for USA based web sites for page loading times. So it's hard to gauge real page load speed beyond doing gtmetrix and webpagetest.org page load speed tests.

    This forum is hosted on 2GB SSD Linode VPS (Los Angeles region), and as you can see at http://community.centminmod.com/posts/16/, I have so far done some page load speed optimisations. I am sure there's more to come but for now, how is the forum page load speed in your area of the world ?

    Cheers guys..

    Got a few more server side tweaks to implement not that it would make much of a difference - pretty much happy with 700-900ms speedindex score from webpagetest.org tests on Cable 5Mbps speeds.

    I've never really noticed most of their own optimisation, as it doesn't work on HTTPS sites (all mine are now). Think there is only XF.com and WHT.com that I visit on my phone that aren't HTTPS.

    yeah Chrome optimisations only for non-https sites but it includes this forum right now :)

    Added more bloat to this forum with more addons http://community.centminmod.com/threads/xenforo-addon-suggestions-list.17/#post-232 :D

    thanks @dorobo

    that board is using some form of front end caching as you can see it in their http headers :)
