    Nice I always love fast loading pages :D

    FYI, You can still get fast loading pages with Xenforo Google, Facebook and Twitter sign ups enabled.. don't be so focused on the actual score number and page load times but more about sub tests and their meaning and the initial perceived visual render time of a page. For that webpagetest.org is better suited for tests as GTmetrix chrome browser is too out dated Chrome 36 doesn't support HTTP/2 either only Chrome 43+

    oh and don't use unthrottled GTmetrix connection speed, use Cable 5Mbps and 3G connection speeds for more real world page load tests

    cheers.. part of it is due to style used thanks to to @Russ and then Centmin Mod LEMP stack with ngx_pagespeed. And helps to have a nice speedy server setup - 4GB Linode VPS for me :)

    I need to work on a faster style. Have always kept it close to default.

    needs some page fat cut

    on 3G with relatively closest test locations for each site

    my forums are in california but closest is dallas test location

    if gtmetrix used chrome 46 instead of 36, it would support HTTP/2 which would be faster for my forums and any site using https and HTTP/2

    I also love speedy sites, I pay too much attention on that. (speed+performance) and I'm very interested to run my next project on CentminMod LEMP + with ngx_pagespeed. in Linode, but the learning curve seems very high. :barefoot:
    eva2000, it would be great create a zone for beginners on https://community.centminmod.com/ ;)

    HTTP/2 is one thing I gave up lately in changing from LiteSpeed to Apache. But they seem faster after that change. Faster time to first byte and start render times. Not sure why.

    TTFB isn't everything when it comes to SPDY/HTTP/2 see https://community.centminmod.com/posts/13724/

    I realize http/2 is the way to go. Just happy that I can pay $50 less per month (LiteSpeed lease) and not notice any performance difference. Will be glad when Apache is http/2.

    Apache 2.4.17 have the http/2 mod inside.
