Bloated Home Pages Increase Travel Site Load Times has a great speed comparison of three leading travel sites and comes up with some interesting findings. Plus it has a catchy title--Overweight Travel Sites Delay Holiday Travelers--although from an SEO standpoint it would benefit from being a little less cute and a bit more obvious as to what it's about.

Anway, the fact that the sites' home pages average about 150kb is pretty scary--don't they care about dial-up users? I'd never heard of the term "HTTP Compression" before reading this article either--there's a useful technology that more sites should be using. Maybe they are and I'm just late to the table?
