Royal Pingdom » Why CDNs are great for the Internet, and it’s not for the reason you think

CDNs (Content Delivery Networks) are becoming increasingly popular. The obvious benefit is that they can help websites to give end users a speedier web surfing experience, but there is also another very positive side effect for the entire Internet, and it will become more noticeable the more common CDNs become.

Bon courage à tous les développeurs web !
