Summary

In this chapter, we discussed HTML5 and CSS3 and how to use their features to create performance optimization. In particular, we talked about the importance of hardware acceleration and GPU, and we used CSS3 effects instead of using heavy images. Also, we talked about CSS3 animations versus JavaScript animations and how to use iconic fonts instead of images. After that, we discussed how to use media queries and display none in CSS. Finally, we explored CSS preprocessors and the importance of minifying CSS and JavaScript.

In the next chapter, I will discuss caching and optimizing techniques that we can use to enhance performance much more.
