JPGExtra – Sample Web Page
Typical websites, particularly shopping and photo sites, contain many individual JPG files on each page. After optimizing those JPG files with JPGExtra, web pages go from “empty” to “full” much faster.
Before and After JPGExtra Optimization
Web Page – Before
• Each image loads slowly.
• Page looks empty for longer.
Web Page – After
• Each image loads quickly.
• Page appears full sooner.
I've found that almost ALL websites have JPG files containing hidden extras, ranging from a few bytes to tens of thousands of bytes per file. Large numbers of such files on a website can create a significant impact all the way down the chain from the web server through the internet to the visitor's device:
- Increased disk space requirements;
- Higher bandwidth costs and higher peak bandwidth;
- Longer page load times, which affects web rankings;
- Greater memory usage, which can affect visitors' computers.
Anyone serious about website optimization will understand that it pays to strip ALL excess from JPG files to make them as lean and fast as possible.
