Opera study: only 4.13% of the web is standards-compliant

Browser maker Opera has published the early results of an ongoing study that aims to provide insight into the structure of Internet content. To conduct this research project, Opera created the Metadata Analysis and Mining Application (MAMA), a tool that crawls the web and indexes the markup and scripting data from approximately 3.5 million pages.

Statistical analysis of the data collected by MAMA has provided Opera’s engineers with a unique understanding of emerging trends in web development and the way that standards-based web technologies are used on the Internet. Opera plans to take the project to the next level by building a search engine on top of the indexed data so that web designers, browser implementers, and standards experts can easily obtain information about real-world usage of web technologies

Minify CSS – Compress CSS Code

Simple – to compress the code so it loads faster

Minification is the practice of removing unnecessary characters from code to reduce its size, thus improving load times. When CSS/JS code is minified all comments are usually removed, as well as unneeded “white space” characters like space, new line, and tab. With respect to CSS, this improves load time performance because the size of the file downloaded is often significantly reduced. Two popular tools for minifying CSS code are JSMin and YUI Compressor. Many tools also minify CSS, learn more at

Minification (programming) – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Minification (very often just minify, and sometimes also minimisation or minimization), in computer programming languages and especially JavaScript, is the process of removing all unnecessary characters from source code, without changing its functionality. These unnecessary characters usually include white space characters, new line characters, comments and sometimes block delimiters; which are used to add readability to the code, but are not required for it to execute.

Minified source code is especially useful for interpreted languages deployed and transmitted on the Internet (such as JavaScript), because it reduces the amount of data that needs to be transferred. Minified source code may also be used as a kind of obfuscation. In Perl culture, aiming at extremely minified source code is the purpose of Perl golf game.

Minified source code is also very useful for HTML code. All white space in HTML is reduced to only one space on the surface of a web page, so it’s often quite possible to halve the size of a web page, by removing all excessive white space.
