Abbreviating Yahoo.com

Yahoo! was one of the first sites on the web to employ URL abbreviation. As one of the most popular pages on the web, Yahoo! does everything possible to save bandwidth and maximize speed. Yahoo! uses unquoted abbreviated URLs to squeeze their home page down to the bare minimum, which violates (X)HTML but still works (see Figure 19.1).

Figure 19.1. Yahoo.com—abbreviation central.
