In November 2010, Google launched mod_pagespeed ( an open-source Apache module that makes web sites faster by dynamically rewriting HTML, Images, CSS, and JavaScript while serving them. It reduces byte-count, request-count, and restructures web pages to optimize browser behavior. It has been adopted by multiple hosting providers, content delivery networks, and it now powers over 120,000 web sites. After a product demonstration, we'll describe the architecture of mod_pagespeed, its recent past, latest features, a road-map for the near future, and opportunities for community contribution to the open-source effort.

Joshua Marantz (@jmarantz ( is a Software Engineer on Google’s Pagespeed Automatic ( team in Cambridge, MA, which is dedicated to making the web faster for everyone. Josh has been working on making software run fast for several decades, at Google and before that on accelerated chip simulation.
