Avoid css expressions
2. CSS performance and website speed
There are a number of speed factors which need to be considered during website speed optimization. While analysing and evaluating the performance of website, there are a variety of performance metrics to measure, for instance:
- Time to first byte
- Time to start render
TTFB or Time to load first byte refers to how long it takes to receive the first byte after requesting your URL. The time to start render is the point at which the user’s browser actually begins displaying content. The former is largely dependent on your server setup, but the latter depends more on how your CSS is structured.
Browsers won’t begin rendering until they receive data, so a slow time to first byte will clearly push back your chance to start rendering. In this manner, you should resolve any possible issues with your server before you can receive the full benefits of enhancing your CSS execution.
