CloudFlare and Railgun

Has anyone noticed a substantial increase in performance when using Railgun and/or Rocket Loader?

For me, rocket loader disabled the drop down to login which they're working on.

I have never had much luck with cloudflare period. I have seen some people praise it but I do not care for it. It made my website slower then when I am not using it.

That's odd, it has always seemed to make my website double the speed. Railgun, like I assume @xfrocks has on his website, seems to make pages load almost instantly. CloudFlare is like an Akamai but without all of the customization.

I'm the same, I would slow my sites down not speed them up. Gave up on it in the end. I think it depends on where you are (as close to there servers or not)

I'd use it really for the security though even if the performance is negligible. I notice a extreme performance gain when I cache everything on the website, but then again it keeps logging me out. Need to work on a fix.

Strange I wonder if they fixed it. I have been logging in and out and it works just fine. I'll keep an eye on it.
If you are referring to your Fluxoid site... I can't get the logon screen at all from Chrome. I can with Safari so it may be a Chrome problem.

Ya I had to disable Rocket Loader, it was doing some other strange things on the front page. Plus like you said your site should be compatible with all browsers. As far as the Rail Gun service, I did run into a problem with it. I have a ticket put in with CloudFlare, so we will see what they say.
