EDIT: I have displayed two waterfall images here from webpagetest.org for loading a topic with one server from London UK and one server from another country. The time the page is first rendered in IE 8 is more than 2 seconds. This is more than twice the time vbulletin uses for my topic pages. 1. Are you happy with the page load? My first time users are the ones who have to be served the fastest as they are the ones who click on my ads. 2. Will we see improvements on this in 1.1? As I have noticed the css are not compressed currently, there may be other settings currently available within xenforo that could help the first render time, too.
