How much faster is it to use a base64/line to display images than opposed to simply linking to the hard file on the server?
I haven’t been able to find any type of performance metrics on this.
I have a few concerns:
- You no longer gain the benefit of caching
- Isn’t a base64 A LOT larger in size than what a PNG/JPEG file size?
Let’s define “faster” as in: the time it takes for a user to see a full rendered HTML web page
