So I just shrunk the JS for my blog for most pages from ~85kb (uncompressed) to 1.61 kb (uncompressed) by getting rid of jQuery and instead writing my own JS a bit more verbose.

It might even be less effective than jQuery's implementation, but the time that is spend on download and compile/interpret jQuery should be worse.


You could also provide WebP images additionally to PNG images, and you could use pngquant for better PNG compression: pngquant --quality=65-80 filename

Compressing Shivering-Isles-Onion-Service-5-hops.png using these parameters resulted in 18 kB instead of 63 kB.
