Who doesn't want their site to be faster? I want my sites to be blazing fast, delivering content and design in microseconds... but microseconds is still a dream. Loading in milliseconds is possible with some effort.
Joomla 1.5 loads mootols library by default with every pageload. The mootools.js packages with Joomla 1.5 is located at "/media/system/js/mootools.js" and weighs a significant 72.6 kB. That can significantly lower the speed of your website, especially if the users are on low bandwidth connections.
By the way, if you want to check how fast your site is, you can check it out at our Website Speed Test Tool.
While you can reduce the size of mootools required for your site by trial and error as decsribed by Rick, it could be quite painful and may need to be done repeatedly whenever you install a new extension that may depend on a specific component of mootols that you may have removed.
