Bundling == Slower load times?
Hi I'm looking at adding a script/css bundling feature to my application.

However, I measured the before and after and found my load times were slower with the bundling enabled.

So I ended up creating a stripped down app to reproduce the problem.

IE8 with bundling:

IE8 without bundling:
http://www.webpagetest.org/result/120703...053a55634/

IE7 with bundling:

IE7 without bundling:
http://www.webpagetest.org/result/120703...a5dd39189/

The only browser where bundling seems faster is with IE7. I imagine this is because of it's 2 connection limit per domain and blocking script downloads.

Am I missing something here? I've always read bundling scripts and css were a best practice. Is that not the case with newer browsers?
