Did you notice yet? GizChina.com (your favourite Chinese tech site) just got a whole lot faster!
Karel and co. managed to do some backend magic (that I really don’t know much about, to be honest) to make GizChina a whole lot faster.
Not only does the homepage now load in just a second, also all articles and other pages are blazing fast!
The update, I’m told, has something to do with adding an Nginx proxy server in between the client and the apache host. Don’t worry if it doesn’t make sense to you (we’re on the same boat), it just means that the site is now going to be much faster than before!
If you’re more into numbers, the GizChina homepage (one of the heaviest pages on the site) loads in about one second as compared to four seconds previously. How cool is that!

Oh and also, something absolutely new and fresh — GizChina 3.0 — is coming your way soon! More on this later.
We’re committed to making GizChina.com the go-to portal for Chinese tech enthusiasts the world around. We’re also open to all kinds of constructive criticism, feedback, and banter. Feel free to get in touch anytime!
