Why are we doing that

At Pixboost we think that the Internet can be a better place if we make it faster, more performant and inclusive. In the last decade, we've got quite a few innovations such as faster networks (4G and 5G), mobile devices received CPU updates and yet websites load time still goes up! Here is our manifesto:

  • Performance is the crucial part of User-Centred Design
  • In most cases making websites load faster should not compromise, but help creativity, design thinking and new ideas
  • Making web application more performant would allow people to keep their devices longer therefore will help our environment
