you show a waterfall for Russia and Tokyo, of course, it must take lots of time for the bytes to fly almost half the world from USA server to RUSSIA or TOKYO servers )))
That also surprised me when I looked into the waterfalls, but discarded it since, according to IPLocationfinder, that IP is based in San Francisco, California. Since Cloudflare has no data centre in that city*, while its offices are in San Francisco, I thought that was an "administrative IP" from CloudFlare (if such a thing exists).

Does that reasoning make sense or should the IP address from CloudFlare's data centre show up in the test results?

*: There is a data centre in San Jose, which is practically a neighbour of San Francisco. Don't know if that counts?

1) I would add DNS prefetch for these guys ajax.cloudflare.com, http://themes.googleusercontent.com, http://www.google-analytics.com/, http://rum-collector.pingdom.net to avoid dns looksups or I harder way put your fonts and scripts in your main root site

2 - I would inline couple of your images in CSS - base 64

3 - I would think one more time if you need custom fonts, if need, then remove glyphs and use this service http://www.fontsquirrel.com/tools/webfont-generator

some dirty thing)
4 - I would remove Accept encoding line, cookie and referral from your Header request
Thank you for these suggestions! Smile I'll work on implementing these later this week.
