Re: Faster web sites
Yes and no. A site hosting its own fonts, JS libraries, etc means no need to connect to other servers, But you'll download common resources once for each site, instead of just once.
I'm not sure I understand the basis of the fine. If I host a site, visitors must reveal their IP address to those operating intermediate routers. The visitor has no control over this. That's OK, because there's no alternative? I can reference remote resources but only if hosted by a provider that assures me it won't use the IP addresses it sees, beyond what is necessary?
