Introduction to Divi’s latest performance boosting enhancements
These modifications have been introduced to address various Google PageSpeed insights as explained in this short video by Nick Roach of Elegant Themes.
Just to refresh your memory here is a summary of the main points covered in the video:
- Google PageSpeed insights – the latest version of Divi improves performance and website speed by addressing various Google PageSpeed insights.
- Overall Request Reduction – as well as reduced requests resulting from file combination, Divi now also optimizes Google font delivery by combining font requests and removing duplicate font files.
Code is reformatted and unneeded characters are removed. This reduces the size of Divi’s files and speeds up loading times.
In the latest version of Divi, file sizes have been reduced by around 13%.
After all files have been combined, total requests on a standard Divi install is reduced by around 60%.
