Great news! Elegant Themes has updated Divi to only load what is truly needed for the current screen. Today I updated this website from Divi 4.9.4 to 4.10.4 and tested with GTMetrix and PageSpeed Insights. The website continued to have PerfMatters and WPRocket installed.
GTMetrix desktop load < .7 seconds, grade A 100%
PageSpeed Insights deskop 100
GTMetrix mobile load 3.2 seconds, grade A 91% [ images could be scaled better ]
PageSpeed Insights mobile 93
I am very happy with these results. These first tests were on a very simple, already optimized website. If all goes well, I will continue updating client websites with this great new version.
