GZIP Compression and Image Compression

RE: GZIP Compression and Image Compression
A CDN will help mostly if users from multiple locations use your site (i.e. it's not just a community-focused site). The CDN will have really fast first byte times for all of the static content assuming your caching headers allow the CDN to cache the content.

If you see no difference in the images (and don't need transparency), by all means switch them to jpegs. Play with the quality level to go as low as you can and still produce a satisfactory image (watch out for blockiness in the letters in particular).

If you have a link to your test results that you don't mind sharing you might get some other useful feedback from the community as well.
