Autoptimize speeds up your website and helps you save bandwidth by aggregating and minimizing JS, CSS and HTML.
1.8.1 broken theme completely even setting
define("AUTOPTIMIZE_LEGACY_MINIFIERS","true"); in wp-config.php, fyi. Ideally it's better if it keeps working even updates.
I have just installed and done the basic configuration and I have improved my blog performance at Page Speed Insights in 8 points more or less.
I've been looking recently at optimisation plugins because my rating on http://www.webpagetest.org/ was pretty poor. After installing this plugin my Compress Transfer rating went from an F to a C, so this is clearly doing something right!
Just by enabling the HTML and CSS option, my site immediately improved its YSlow score instantly. I'm no tech savvy so the JS part of it, I am still figuring it out. Nonetheless, it did the job.
HTML compression works well, JS compression and CSS compression contains CDN which is very helpful in case of load speed but some include some issues: JS compression disables some JAVA related parts of WP like password strength meter, slideshow, video player ... and CSS compression makes most of themes absolutely imbalanced. But the comparison between page size shows if the author solve these challenges Autoptimize would be the best Optimizer+CDN plugin ever based on these data: no compression: 746kb + html compression: 733kb + js compression: 367kb + css compression: 31kb !
This plug-in broke my style sheet. I suppose this don't happen to everybody, but for me it was a disaster.
