Optimize CSS Delivery

Optimize CSS Delivery


This rule triggers when PageSpeed Insights detects that a page includes render blocking external stylesheets, which delay the time to first render.

Overview


Before the browser can render content it must process all the style and layout information for the current page. As a result, the browser will block rendering until external stylesheets are downloaded and processed, which may require multiple roundtrips and delay the time to first render. See render-tree construction, layout, and paint to learn more about the critical rendering path, and render blocking CSS for tips on how to unblock rendering and improve CSS delivery.

Recommendations


If the external CSS resources are small, you can insert those directly into the HTML document, which is called inlining. Inlining small CSS in this way allows the browser to proceed with rendering the page. Keep in mind if the CSS file is large, completely inlining the CSS may cause PageSpeed Insights to warn that the above-the-fold portion of your page is too large via Prioritize Visible Content. In the case of a large CSS file, you will need to identify and inline the CSS necessary for rendering the above-the-fold content and defer loading the remaining styles until after the above-the-fold content.

Example of inlining a small css file

Don't inline large data URIs

Don’t inline CSS attributes

Example of inlining a small CSS file


If the HTML document looks like this:

 

   

 

 

   

      Hello, world!

   

 

And the resource small.css is like this:

  .yellow {background-color: yellow;}

  .blue {color: blue;}

  .big { font-size: 8em; }

  .bold { font-weight: bold; }

Then you can inline critical CSS as follows:

 

   

   

 

   

      Hello, world!

   

   

 

The critical styles needed to style the above-the-fold content are inlined and applied to the document immediately. The full small.css is loaded after initial painting of the page. Its styles are applied to the page once it finishes loading, without blocking the initial render of the critical content.


Note that the web platform will soon support loading stylesheets in a non-render-blocking manner, without having to resort to using JavaScript, using HTML Imports.


Don't inline large data URIs


Be careful when inlining data URIs in CSS files. While selective use of small data URIs in your CSS may make sense, inlining large data URIs can cause the size of your above-the-fold CSS to be larger, which will slow down page render time.


Don't inline CSS attributes


Inlining CSS attributes on HTML elements (e.g., ) should be avoided where possible, as this often leads to unnecessary code duplication. Further, inline CSS on HTML elements is blocked by default withContent Security Policy (CSP).

Explainer: The nico-teen brain

Explainer: The nico-teen brain The adolescent brain is especially vulnerable to the addictive effects of nicotine BY  TERESA SHIPLEY FELDHAUSEN 7:00AM, AUGUST 19, 2015 Nicotine (black triangle towards center left) tricks the nerve cell (neuron) into sending a message to release more dopamine (yellow dots). Those molecules enter the space (synapse) between one nerve cell and the next. When they get picked up by neighboring cells, this gives users a feel-good high. It also creates the risk of addiction and other health problems.  EMail Print Twitter Facebook Reddit Google+ NATIONAL INSTITUTE ON DRUG ABUSE, ADAPTED BY J. HIRSHFELD Nicotine is the addictive chemical in tobacco smoke and e-cigarette vapors. And doctors say the teenage brain is no place for it to end up. Nicotine can reach the brain within seven seconds of puffing on a cigar, hookah, cigarette or electronic cigarette.
