A couple of months ago I gave the OLM
team a copy of Steve Souders' book High Performance Web Sites
. Since then, they've improved OLM
's performance several times over, in part based on Souders' advice. Last week, one of the team told me about YSlow
, a Firefox plugin that implements Souders' rules. (See here
for the OSCON announcement.) That led to a discussion of whether tools like Eclipse
would one day merge. Personally, I think that future is already here: it's still just very unevenly distributed...
