comment Mediawiki much slower in Firefox
Thanks, I'll test. The difference between both browsers is quite large. And this is the default wikipedia skin! I think the problem may be on how browsers cache, directed by Apache. Can you help by looking at the http response headers. I've added them to the question.

I've added the http response headers. Please note that the main problem is the difference between cache clean page loading times with different browsers.

comment Mediawiki much slower in Firefox
Thanks. The issue here is the huge difference between Firefox and Chrome (both after cleaning their caches), that does not happen in other Mediawiki sites with the same skin. I'm using the default skin, which is quite well optimized accordingly to Yslow. I've added http response headers.

comment Mediawiki much slower in Firefox
I've tested in different days both with a MacOS and a Windows Vista Machine. Yes DH it's a little slow when compared with other hosts, at least with my assigned machine, but that's not the problem I'm trying to solve at the moment. I suspect the current server configuration does not allow FF to do browser caching and all CSS/Js/images are loaded with every page. The installs are MW default installs, no tuning.

comment Best practise for meta tags in various languages
Meta keywords aren't used by Google any more and probably other big search engines don't use them either in any situation. So the answer depends on what search engines you are referring to :-)

comment Is traditional JavaScript image pre-loading taboo
I understood you wanted to preload images to be used in other pages/ajax calls, so loading them is faster. And in that case $(window).load is the right answer because you just want the browser to cache them.
