Apart for the forum (temporarially) the rest of the site should be serving CSS/JS from our static domains (static.scirra.net to static4.scirra.net). This should improve page performance (it looks like on the homepage in my initial tests it's speed up for as much as 100-200ms).

It required another DNS propogation which I left for a few days, I've also run some propogation worldwide checks and they all came back clear, but if you have any issues please post them in here.

The homepage for Scirra.com is blazingly fast for me now :) I'll hopefully be rolling this upgrade out to the forum pages when V10 is online.

I've tried to be really careful designing the site, when all initial caches are primed, each page served is around 4kb to 8kb in size, which is extremely tiny. This should be of great benefit to anyone on a mobile device, and also for everyone in general as I find they tend to load really really quickly.

yeah, to make mobile users happy is quite challenging, always complain about speed and loading times.

4kb-8kb - that kind of awesome result.

One site I recently visited that changed it's website now has a homepage of around 2.5mb! It has the benefit of a more dynamic look and feel perhaps, but I prefer the philosophy of keeping it really trim and as accessible as possible.Tom2011-07-05 20:52:31

i always thought the same, You can have some nice high qualilty images, cool flash animations, but if someone want's to view your page and have to wait 20 seconds for everything to load up thats just missing the point.
