    Almost every plugin loads it's own javascript and/or css files once it's activated. Automatically compressing and combining them into one file would highly reduce the page load time. I don't think it would be very difficult to do as the files are inserted in a very cleaver way by the plugins.

    Of course there should be an option to disable/enable this function and optionally exclude some files.

  2. This is a great idea! I was looking around for a plugin that has been made to handle some serious compression. \

    I think the "load code from Google plugin" is a very good start since it automatically compresses the ajax libraries like Jquery and so on. Also if the broswer already has these libraries cached from another website, they will be reused.

    #2 the remainder of the JS and CSS should be concatenation to reduce HTTP requests.

    I should have this project in beta within a few days. I would expect a 60-70%+ drop in load time. We will see...
