    A research shows that a user spends 70-80% of the online shopping time on the store front. Only around 20-30% time is spent in the checkout process. So optimizing the front end would make the website performance better. JavaScript and CSS files need to be aggregated and compressed. You can use modules that would help you to compress the files and reduce its size. Several tools are available to compress the themes and images on the website. Too much of compression can damage the picture quality, so make sure you set a limit prior to start compressing the images.
