?The growing importance of web performance is well documented, from the fact that Google now incorporates page load time into search engine rankings, to Mozilla?s ability to increase Firefox downloads by 15 percent, simply by decreasing load time by 2 seconds. Smart companies such as Google have been using web performance as a competitive differentiator for many years”, said Vincent Voyer, Zeroload’s founder. “However, many other businesses have not fully realized how performance can be the secrete sauce. We are organizing this first international web performance contest to help more people take advantage of the opportunities enabled by faster web sites”.

Contest Awards will be given on the following categories: Best Yottaa Score, Best onload & start render, and smallest number of requests & total size. Prizes are provided by contest sponsors, including iPad, iPod, and technical books. The judges of the contest include web performance experts such as �ric Daspet, Stoyan Stefanov, Jean-Pierre Vincent, and Vincent Voyer. Other contest sponsors include AlwaysData (a web hosting company providing both dedicated server and shared hosting services) and Catchpoint Systems (a web performance monitoring software company).
