Time for Sprites

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.
