  1. the biggest advantage that I've noticed is on websites that use image galleries, where the images are delivered via PHP in case they need resizing, etc.sending the images via CDN instead of directly from the site means you're shaving (as you've spotted) seconds or even tens of seconds off the load time.this has a huge effect when there are /multiple/ sites on the server with the same problem.

    • That makes sense.  After all, images are probably the biggest overhead in a site, so anything which speeds up their load time will have a big impact.

      Having been on CloudFlare for a couple of days now, I'm begining to get stats.  I now have to work out if their "Threat Control" provides any advantage over a normally hosted site…
