Launching marketplace causes the following things- a) A gray screen (browser placeholder) loads and after a while, a blank screen loads and then the marketplace homepage loads. b) marketplace generally takes a long time to load c) Page load is super slow on marketplace-dev. I have seen this on mozilla-G and mozilla guest. We should look into optimizing marketplace performance. I will try to get the actual load times for the above mentioned issues.
Cvan: Krupa says you have ideas for this. What do you have in mind?
Created attachment 703033 [details] Resource size report for 2013-01-16 Here's an analysis of the current network load for an initial mobile Marketplace pageload. We should file bugs for the low hanging fruit in here.
(In reply to Wil Clouser [:clouserw] from comment #1) > Cvan: Krupa says you have ideas for this. What do you have in mind? jinja2js, etc. Basta has all kind of ideas. Slimming down our CSS/JS and reducing our image assets is something we're actively doing (the past few days), and both Potch and Basta are actively measuring our page sizes.

We have a splash screen now while loading and Fireplace is solving a lot of performance problems. This bug doesn't have specific things to fix so I'm going to close it. Thanks.
