Images will be cached client-side. Having resources (style sheets, Javascript) in external files rather than included in the page means clients can cache them. This is more efficient.

The number of http requests is important, even if stuff is cached. I've been doing some testing with CSS sprites, and actually seen 10x better page load times. Even with the browser cache, clients send requests to the server checking if images/files have been updated.

Bunding css files and images in general is a good idea, but not always. It takes a lot of testing to make sure you are not really hurting performance.

:shock: :shock: :shock:
Ok, there is always a possibility that the concurrent connections list is fake, but browsing through the board I thing that the number of posts are not far from the truth.
I mean wow, ~16 million posts? And that board I assure you, is freaking fast :shock:
I think I know the board you're talking about :twisted: and if so, it's phpBB 3 and yes, it's very fast!

well yes . phpbb does use css sprites but maybe in a separate files :) ( icons for :hovers ) . the styles theme should work on it , and bundleing css +images files = prosilver isnt easy for modification :) . but u are right . its time designers to think about performance .

LOL. vB is such a heavy web application, it is just inundated with pointless JavaScript and flashy Ajax that do nothing but slow down the user experience. phpBB is light and fast, I ran it on an old server with 128mb of ram and a 480 mhz processor. It ran lighting fast, someone who was 3000 miles away testing the website wondered if I had a quad core because the server was responding so fast. It was all phpBB, it runs super efficient.

Not to mention the vB backend code is a total mess -- they also only support MySQL, which is not very well suited to larger sites (I've heard that postgresql works better for larger sites, due to scalability reasons).
