Big Three Automakers in Online Slow Lane / CSS: Group Declarations

Optimization Week Issue #3, Nov. 19, 2003

This week we compare the home pages of Detroit's "big three" automakers for speed and accessibility to see how well they fare with published guidelines. We compare Ford.com, GM.com, and Chrysler.com to see who's got the fastest car site. In this week's speed tweak we show how to group declarations in your CSS to save space.

If you've got an idea for a speed review we want to hear from you. If you've found a site that you find particularly fast or slow let us know about it and it just might appear in a future issue.
