Hacking Your Webpage's Head Tags for Speed and Profit

Most of us developers settle for page load times somewhere between 3 and 7 seconds. We open up the graph in NewRelic or webpagetest.org, sigh, and then go back to implementing that new feature that the marketing people absolutely must have deployed yesterday.Little do we realize, perceived front-end load times closer to half a second are possible for most (if not all) websites with very little effort.Most webpages have slow frontend load times not because they’re heavy (north of 1MB), or because they need 200kb of Javascript just to render a “Hello World!” (cough Ember cough). It isn’t because the pipes are too small either - bandwidth is really more than sufficient for the Web today.
