browsers opening only 2 connections to the server at any given time.
a.) Minimize size of page, css, images, etc.
b.) Reduce size of html pages. You can achieve this by:
c.) removing whitespaces,
d.) removing redundant tag attributes,
e.) simplifying DIV nesting structure,
f.) striping http://www.site.com/ for relative urls
g.) factoring out long 'style' attributes into a css class

movies and embeddables. For example, the Ning photos slideshow player
was compressed from 136kB down to 46 kB, a saving of 1.4 seconds on a
512 kbps connection.
