Webmasters can provide maps, real-time news, calendars, presentations, spreadsheets and YouTube videos on their sites.

Snappier websites help users find things faster; the recommendations from these latency tools allow hosters and webmasters to optimize website speed. These techniques can help hosters reduce resource use and optimize network bandwidth.
