Combine CSS, Images & JavaScript files

Tip: JMerge is a simple web application which combines JavaScript files.

JavaScript files are loaded one after another by the browser. There is a certain response time for each request that varies depending on the number of visitors, internet connection speed and the server's location. We recommend combining JavaScript files into a single one so as to reduce your request number and so decrease your page load time.
Below is the summary for weather.com that can help you to decrease your page load time by combining your JavaScript files into a single file:
 d.imwx.com
6 scripts found. <expand>
 admin.brightcove.com
2 scripts found. <expand>

Tip: Use the CSS sprites technique.

To reduce the number of HTTP requests made by a browser, you can also combine images into one file.
We've found this website to have many images on the same domain:
 d.imwx.com
4 images found. <expand>
 s.imwx.com
64 images found. <expand>
 i.imwx.com
7 images found. <expand>

Files which may be compressed.

Tip: Use a 'deflate' module on your web server to enable on-the-fly compression.
