I'm testing speed loading for my site with Astroid and found that it too slow.
I found that Astroid loads css from use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.8.1/css/all.css
When it loads on my site - it takes more than 2 seconds. It's not normal. All page should loads 1-2 seconds.
So, I tested this file individually.
Ok, sometimes it loads faster
But 0.7 seconds it's too slow!
How we can fix it?

Font Awesome CSS - Too slow loading
1 year 7 months ago #14977
I ran it by the dev team and decided not to do this, since it'll add to the size of the Astroid package, which we want to keep as much smaller as possible.
First of all, it's just ridiculous.
File size is 55kb.
Next, site speed is much more important, then package size.
You may add new option in template settings - Load fontawesome css from fontawesome.com or from local folder (user should set path) - if you don't want to add this css in package.
You made perfect framework with couple of little, but very important bad things (read also my other topics - this, this, this).
Sorry, will search another.
