Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content

Your page has 2 blocking script resources and 1 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page.

None of the above-the-fold content on your page could be rendered without waiting for the following resources to load. Try to defer or asynchronously load blocking resources, or inline the critical portions of those resources directly in the HTML.Remove render-blocking JavaScript:

Optimize CSS Delivery of the following:


Configure the viewport

Your page does not have a viewport specified. This causes mobile devices to render your page as it would appear on a desktop browser, scaling it down to fit on a mobile screen. Configure a viewport to allow your page to render properly on all devices.

Configure a viewport for this page.

Size tap targets appropriately

Some of the links/buttons on your webpage may be too small for a user to easily tap on a touchscreen. Consider making these tap targets larger to provide a better user experience.

The following tap targets are close to other nearby tap targets and may need additional spacing around them.

The tap target <a href="/archive">Archive</a> and 4 others are close to other tap targets .
The tap target <a href="https://store.…tions/featured">four new shirts</a> and 15 others are close to other tap targets .

Enable compression

Compressing resources with gzip or deflate can reduce the number of bytes sent over the network.

Enable compression for the following resources to reduce their transfer size by 63.1KiB (65% reduction).

Compressing http://xkcd.com/1350/jquery.min.js could save 61.5KiB (65% reduction).
Compressing http://xkcd.com/static/json2.js could save 1.6KiB (56% reduction).

Leverage browser caching

Setting an expiry date or a maximum age in the HTTP headers for static resources instructs the browser to load previously downloaded resources from local disk rather than over the network.

Leverage browser caching for the following cacheable resources:

http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/artifacts.png (5 minutes)
http://imgs.xkcd.com/static/terrible_small_logo.png (5 minutes)
http://imgs.xkcd.com/store/new-xkcd-shirts.png (5 minutes)
