Today we made a small change to the bazaar back-end in our efforts to provide you with the best experience possible. By adding a caching layer for the images of Bazaar including http/2 support we are able to provide an even faster loading time when visiting the Bazaar page.
How did we do this? (For the technical people who are interested)
We configured a Nginx reverse proxy with caching enabled. This reverse proxy serves only static files on a separate subdomain. By enabling http/2 support, any modern browser will be able to benefit from multiplexing over a single connection to our image cache, something that was not possible with http 1.1. By doing so all images can be loaded simultaneously over this one single connection giving a huge performance boost compared to http 1.1.
I hope you will enjoy this small change we made. Any feedback is welcome as well.
