Yup, you heard it right. As if the previous speed of gmail wasn’t enough, google has just made gmail faster than ever, or so they claim in the gmail blog .

I’m a gmail user myself and I guess the change in speed is noticeable.

What they have done this time to speed up gmail is that they have tried to reduce the number of HTTP requests that are made to the server once you click the "sign in" button. According to the tech lead of gmail performance, who wrote the blog post announcing the increase in speed by around 20%, gmail previously made 14 to 24 HTTP requests whereas now it only takes 4 requests to do the job!!!

Great going guys. Sometimes it really makes me feel proud to be a GMAIL user :)
