Are you asking if it could be faster or why it doesn't always render correctly. From the looks of the waterfall, do you also have cloudflare's rocket loader enabled? I'd turn that off first to see if that might be the source of things breaking.

As far as being faster - well, things can always be faster :-)

- You have WAY too many css files - you should have W3TC combine them for you atomatically.
- Do you really need the 2 different custom fonts? Have they been optimized for your needs?
- You have a LOT of small images that should be combined into sprites (part of the page template)
thank you Patrick!
seems like the waterfall is caused by the Rocket Loader. disabled it and now it works
is the Rocket Loader a good option to turn on?

indeed.. things can always be faster ^^
- hmm combining them with W3TC results in a waterfall though :/
- I removed one of the fonts. now my timer is messing up but how do i optimize them though?
- hmm i'll try to look up how to do this CSS sprite

thank you!
hmm turning off Rocket Loader decreased the YSlow scores though

Rocket Loader does have the potential to mess up some JavaScript and jQuery functions on sites. If turning the feature off fixed the issue, please report the bug here.

If Rocket Loader is only impacting certain scripts, I also wanted to advise that you can have Rocket Loader ignore those scripts in automatic mode with a script tag.
