Mobile is different. Gaps in the networks, hardware and software used separates the mobile world from the desktop world. But for web performance, these differences are NOT equally important. In this presentation, we’ll dig into these differences with real numbers, helping us focus on the ones that really matter for performance. We’ll review old and new data on where the mobile difference comes into play, bust some myths, and end with some conclusions and takeaways for what you can do about it.
