Slimpack - Lightweight Jetpack

Slimpack — Lightweight Jetpack. Super-fast performance without modules that requires contracting WordPress.com.

Slimpack — Lightweight Jetpack. Super-fast performance without modules that requires contracting WordPress.com.

It provides better performance than original Jetpack. All features that require a WordPress.com account or need contracting / syncing back to WordPress.com servers have been removed. You don't need to connect to WordPress.com to use this plugin. If your site got slow response time (TTFB) after activating the original Jetpack, you should definitely try out this plugin.

More information please visit my site.
