Optimizations: Static Caching and Compression
The server settings have just been updated to pass cache header for images, scripts and the like and to use Gzip compression on text files
This significantly reduces the size of files downloaded during loading and avoids unnecessarily downloading of files that are already cached in the browser.
I should have done that as soon as I migrated the apps to a server of my own, but it slipped my mind.
Now it is totally excelent!
