Here's an easy way to speed it up...
It's alot faster to load a compressed script directly from google rather than load it from your own server.
To do this we need to overide the loading of the built in script in your templates index.php file
Just above the line:
<jdoc:include type="head" />
Insert the following code:
<?php $document =&JFactory::getDocument();unset($document->_scripts[$this->baseurl . '/media/system/js/mootools.js']);?>
The compressed version of the script is 18kb rather than about 80kb.
By loading the script directly from google your browser can download the script at the same time as it downloads your sites content.
