Mastering Webpage Speed
Having finally finished our big website speed improvement project (sort of, Google's madness never ends really, and I have a lot ideas what to do more, but who has the time?), I thought it will help one or the other visitor that we share the current outcome in another cute image.
That's a blink of an eye! So to say. Here's more detail of all the stuff that this site offers its users in terms of conveniences. SO MUCH indeed.
The process to get there was fascinating. Not always easy but with dedication achievable for anyone!

Oh, here's the speed test result promised in the newer update earlier above:
