We are looking for ways to improve page loading speed and reduce memory usage for WebKit in general and for GTK port of WebKit in particular.
One of the ideas is to implement downscaling of the images during decoding for image elements with rectangle less then original image size.
At the moment such images are full decoded to a full size buffer and get downscaled during rendering.
It can be quite beneficial in term of memory usage and should speed up rendering of the pages like image galleries for example.
So what are your thoughts about it?
