A major problem faced by many people while visiting a website is the loading time. According to the elements used in the website and their size, the loading time will also vary. No one will like a website that is very slow in its activities. Here are some tips that will help in increasing the speed of loading a website. First of all, make the website light and the elements used in the website should be of small or medium size so that they can be loaded quickly. Always remember the fact small websites will be very quick in loading. If possible, compress the website as it will also increase the loading speed. There are multiple options in the compression algorithms like the Gzip and deflate.
If the website is compressed, then there will be no requirement to send more data at the time of loading that in turn will reduce the time taken for loading. It will be a very good idea to split large pages into multiple small web pages. This is because the larger websites will take a very long time to load completely. This will also help in avoiding the scroll bars at the side or bottom of the website. Also use a single code source for all the web pages in a website. It is necessary to keep the code clean and delete all the unnecessary coding and reduce the code size as much as possible. Another point that is skipped by many is too much of white space in the website.
Browsers play a vital role in viewing the websites. In recent days, there are numerous web browsers available in the market and a website will not be compatible with all web browsers if it is not created in a proper way. Here are some tools that will be very handy to edit, debug and do code inspections. The tools mentioned below will be very handy to make changes in the prototypes, and there will be no need for the person to touch the live code unless the change has to be made permanently.
Next is the web developer add-on that will be supported on Chrome as well as Firefox. This is also free and will not require any payments to be made for download or installation. This also provides the style sheet where the changes can be made, and the results will be seen immediately. Chrome developer tool is another add-on that will be supported by the Chrome, and this will also help in the good website development.
