Time for Sprites

Postby gary » Tue Sep 20, 2011 7:24 pm

It's time that Easy Button started using image sprites. One http request is better than 50. Our pages could load faster, thus customers experience improved.

During an experiment with this, I found that changing from 50 image files to just one sprite image saved over half a second in download and rendering time for the page. This is a big deal in our short-attention-span world.

That's way Yahoo, Amazon, and all the big players use image sprites.

I completely agree with you and this is a feature that we are considering for the next big version. The browsers support sprites universally now and there should be no problems with that.
