Resource Hints: preconnect, preload, & prerender all the things - Ilya Grigorik

Resource Hints: preconnect, preload, and prerender all the things! - Ilya Grigorik

About this talk:

Modern browsers implement a variety of speculative optimization techniques, but one thing that's missing is a good declarative interface for the developer to hint the browser as to which resources should be downloaded and when; which hosts it should connect to; which pages it should prerender; and so on. We'll discuss the use cases, the proposed API, and the implementation details of the Resource Hints spec ( that aims to fill this gap in the web platform... Bring your questions and use cases, now's the right time!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
