Cute Ajax Performance Trick

Ryan Breen explains how to improve Ajax webapp performance by using CNAME aliases to get around the two-connections-per-host browser limit. Suggested implementation spreads load persistently (for caching)across cnames like this:

where {cname} = some prefix plus truncated hash of {resource.name}.
