Bundling == Slower load times?

RE: Bundling == Slower load times?
Bundling is no longer the clear win that it used to be (at least when you are talking about a sane number of scripts). Each new connection needs to ramp up the connection through TCP's slow start. With 6 connections running in parallel the browser gets 3x as much data in each round trip as when you only have 2.

You are still better off getting as much script content out of the top of the document as possible but it's not strongly recommended that you collapse everything into a single script (particularly if that means moving things up the page to do it).

There are always exceptions so looking at the full waterfall and how the page renders is generally the best way to do it.
