Before I joined the Internet Explorer team, I worked on the
Microsoft Office Online website. Handling massive amounts of traffic, we
faced some performance challenges that forced me to dig into the guts of HTTP
performance. The output of that effort was twofold:
Microsoft Fiddler, and documentation of some best practices for web
performance optimization. The latter has been summarized into a new MSDN
article which discusses Internet Explorer’s support for caching and compression,
and how to use Fiddler to explore site efficiency. You can read the new article
I hope the web developers in the audience will find these tips informative.
