Show HN: Light-web-pages, a “free” alternative to AMP, Instant Articles et al

README.md

Light Web-Pages (LWP) is a mechanism for redirecting users automatically to the lighter versions of the web-pages they
visit.
What is LWP?
LWP is a proposal to add a new header in HTTP GET and HEAD requests, indicating the client’s preference in favour of a
lighter version of the requested resource. The server, then, should redirect the client to the lighter version of
the requested resource, if exists.
LWP is proposed as an open alternative to the current proprietary solutions, to keep the Web free, and also to make it
accessible to users with limited/bad Internet connections.
What LWP tries to solve?
The average web-page size increases steadily and regardless of whether it might be considered as a bloat or not, it
constitutes a problem for many users on mobile and other platforms with bad Internet connections. There is a trend,
as we might call, which led to numerous projects to solve the problem, and the central

The shortlogbelow is obviously just the minor changes since rc7 – the whole 4.12shortlog is much too large to post.In the diff department, 4.12 is also very big, although the reasonthere isn’t just that there’s a lot of development, we have the addedbulk of a lot of new header files for the AMD Vega support. That’salmost exactly half the bulk of the patch, in fact, and partly as aresult

Let’s Encrypt in the spotlight

We have compiled all practical information we could find and written it up at Numbers you need to know. It’s a long list of restrictions, rate limits, and other useful information to keep in mind.  Here’s a few selected points that we found interesting. Big thanks to schoen from Certbot/EFF for pointing out numerous inaccuracies.

HTTPS in browsersDo you know that Let’s Encrypt now issues 80% of all publicly trusted certificates globally?
Do you know that your Let’s encrypt certificate is in fact valid only 89 days and 23 hours?
Do you know that you are only allowed to request only 2,000 OCSP requests per second from each of your servers?
Do you know that in one week you can request 20 new certificates followed by 1,000 renewals, but if you do it the other way round the requests for new certificates will be rejected?
Do you know that if you regularly request a certificate every
