The team implemented Connection Optimizations last week to improve the average load times for users by a considerable margin (see graph). The chart shows the average time of pages loads in milliseconds with the drop occurring when the update was released.
This update will affect all areas of the application. There is still more optimization to be done via caching which we will be working on in our ongoing effort to provide the best user experience.
Let us know how else we can improve your user experience!
