Image Caching

Jupiter X uses Beans Framework in the backbone and it has a great image resizing tool powered with a caching feature to ensure your website gets the best performance results. It means that it is having an Adaptive Image Resizing technology which shows resized images, retina ready, based on the screen sizes. So, in the mobile devices, the image source would be a smaller size of the original image and it loads pretty much quicker than the original image.
