A fast IO plugin, great assistance
By , for WP 3.9.2

Compared to let's say WP Smush It, the optimization process is really fast. There is no "visible" delay when inserting the image to a post or page.

When I updated to version 2.0, I had some issues, but thanks to plugin's author they were resolved.

A really Great Plugin for Images. Speeds up my Website!
By ,

Thank you for creating such a good plugin! I use the cloud service. EWWW Image Optimizer really speeds up my website. [Link moderated] I have used several image optimizers, but none of them seemed to help as much as EWWW Image Optimizer and their cloud service. I recommend EWWW Image Opitmizer!

Hacked my site
By , for WP 3.9.2

Though the problem mentioned by all other below here is true i.e. exec() is ever required which never gets up and running! I came across another issue. When I tried deleting this plugin, it left some residues in my /wp-content/ewwww folder like: pngquant, optipng, jpegtran-custom, jpegtran, gifsicle. I don't know what extensions are for those files!! Even FileZilla couldn't determine its Filetype.

Furthermore, it automatically changed Owner/Group to somebody else and setting File Permissions to 755!! I've contacted my host provider to delete it for me!! Waiting for their reply..

This plugin didn't work for me and was frustrating to delete this residues it left after uninstall!! Very buggy!! :((
