JA Kyanite - CSS Sprites for a faster Joomla site
It’s no secret that users prefer faster Joomla! sites. At a wide variety of practical approach for light-weight pages, JoomlArt selects a technique named CSS Sprites for our October template - JA Kyanite, hoping a pretty huge improvement in time spent loading sites. Not only in typo, CSS Sprites is widely used in menu, modules as well.
The idea behind CSS Sprites is pretty simple where a big graphic is fetched into memory, then parts of that image get displayed. This technique efficiently reduces the number of HTTP requests and overall images' size. We see this as one of the best ways to go in terms of page loads.
In JA Kyanite, you also run across JA Mega menu as another small piece of utility enhancing rich user experience aspects. To closely explore the menu scalability, viewing different instances of the mega menu in JA Purity IIFree, JA Hailite and JA Teline III is highly recommended.
It is worth to remind you more features in JA Kyanite , i.e. Right-to-Left (RTL) language support, handheld screen compatibility as well as JA modules JA Twitter, JA Slideshows. You want to find out more? Please go to our Live demo!
