Removing query strings is all well and good, but understand that they’re there for a reason. You can always adopt another cache-busting technique such as changing the actual filenames of the static resources, or enqueing with a version number in the filename and using rewrites to resolve to the unversioned filename. None of this helps you with the versioning of static resources used by your plugins. If you update a plugin (or theme for that matter) and a static resource used by that plugin is updated and you use query-strings-remover to strip the updated query string, your users will still be using the cached version. This is likely to break your site until the cached resources expire which depending upon your headers could be a year or more. DO NOT use this plugin unless you fully understand the implications..!
