CloudFront instead of S3

I see that you serve the JS file that is embedded into my site over S3.  S3 is not a great solution for these types of files as the latency can be quite high, and as the Javascript file is not loaded asynchronously, this has an impact on my site performance. See http://www.whoishostingthis.com/blog/2010/06/28/amazon-s3-vs-cloudfront/ for a brief discussion on this.

Can you please offer a CloudFront or another Edge solution for your javascript files?  In the mean time I will be using my CDN to serve this file as whilst I appreciate it won't update when you update the file, at lest it will be fast.

BTW. I like your new design, good job.

Matt

We serve .js files from our own CDN, Amazon used only to serve JS for https protected files, we will move completely on our CDN soon.

Also our .js embed code is async.
Oops, sorry, you are right, your code is async.  My mistake.  Glad to hear there is a plan to serve the https files on your CDN as well.
