You'd think large ecommerce sites would lead in HTTPS adoption.. sadly, exactly the opposite is true: http://bit.ly/1yPP8Jd - sad... disturbing, even.

Great talk on how to optimize delivery of "dynamic content"... which is all too often treated as "not cacheable", but definitely doesn't have to be.

First public draft of Frame Timing API: http://bit.ly/1J9DiuV  - aka, real user measurement (RUM) for smoothness... allowing you to measure frame-level timing data from real-world devices and users!

p.s. bonus: implementation already underway in Chrome! \o/

Sorry - only notice your comment. Are you still having problems?
 
Hey +James Cryer I'm trying to use your grunt-pagespeed module but I am running into a bit of a problem.

When I try to run a grunt-task using the "paths" option, it will randomly choose some of the paths to run.

From the documentation it appears to append the path URL to the base url, and then run all of those tasks, but I am not able to get it to run as expected.

Is there something special that I need to do in order to run each of the paths that are in my array in succession?

So far the only way that I have been able to run a set of URL's in a given order is to run a separate sub-task for each URL that I want to test against, but this seems inefficient. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
