  • According to the excellent YSlow plugin [yahoo.com] for Firefox, about 900K of that is uncompressed YUI javascript. There's no excuse for that -- the raw YUI libraries are very well documented, which is pointless for a production website. I use scriptaculous [aculo.us] and prototype.js [prototypejs.org] for my own work and I use yuicompressor [yahoo.com] to squish my JS and then gzip it. Gzipped content works smoothly on all browsers except Safari.

    To make it work with Safari too, you have name your file .jsgz instead of .js.gz and then do the following in

          basically told me I have no idea what I am talking about

          and refused to engage the question on technical grounds to any extent whatsoever

          Utterly false, as anyone can plainly see from the discussion.

          • refused to engage the question on technical grounds to any extent whatsoever

            Utterly false, as anyone can plainly see from the discussion.

            A fine claim, considering your comment elsewhere on this thread:

            I just couldn’t care less to explain myself in such situations

            Yes, anyone can plainly see that from the discussion.

            You have literalism down to a fine art.
