    Google hosts various popular ajax libraries on their CDN, so if a user visits site A that gets the library from google, then visit site B that does the same thing, the users browser has already cached it locally so he doesnt have to download it again..

    The problem however, is that google can be a bit unstable on mainland China, so I'm wondering if anyone know similar things done in China? Maybe Baidu has a similar ajax library hosting service? :)

    Thanks!

    Been doing some testing and the ping response on our own server that we're putting up in china now (~5ms) is far less than both ajax.microsoft.com (~140ms) and google cdn (~80ms).. Yahoo have dome some testing ( http://yuiblog.com/blog/2007/01/04/performance-research-part-2/ and found that 40-60% of users have empty cache. Suprising. Wonder if there's any way of testing how many of our users who has jquery from google libraries api cached as they enter WLIB..

    It had better put servers in China as the limitation from our National Firewall might mess things up sometimes.

    Is there any files on your server have the same HTTP header set as thoese served by Google's CDN?If not, a simple testing can be deployed.

  • THIS IS A BIG IMAGE
    The new javascript tools (Google Closure - http://code.google.com/closure/) released recently might be a good reason to let them host the JS... that is.. if you end up using it. I'll be giving them a go for a recent project :)
