    Since we upgraded to SSL we also enabled HTTP/2 and some extra image caching. The HTTP/2 protocol is much faster than HTTP 1.1 so I think it's made quite a difference.

    I can't say I have noticed much difference while on the laptop, but when accessing from my phone it has definitely seemed faster lately. No idea if the events are related.

    It appears Opera does not support HTTP/2 -- it should fall back to HTTP 1.1 but it would be noticeably slower. They need to get on that. Can I use... Support tables for HTML5, CSS3, etc

    Ah. Ok. My comments were predicated on the only change being SSL encryption. I can see how the change to HTTP/2 and increased image caching would provide for a performance increase.

    Something's b0rk3d. In this post: First Sandhill's, the photo I posted shows-up in edit, but disappears when I post. Shows up again in edit, disappears again when I post.

    I have a slow (often less than 1 Mbps) internet connection and the site seems to be running faster - faster loads of each page. Using Safari on a MBP.

    I am not noticing any significant performance changes. There are so many performance issues between your servers and my computers that such changes would take very serious testing to quantify. I am glad that security has increased though. The issue was on the back of my mind ever since I joined, but I have been too busy to writing anything. Much thanks for that!
