    There are a lot of plugins that claims that they make your WordPress blog faster... But I guess installing and trying all these plugins on your blog is not such a very good thing.

    So I've a list of the most popular plugins affecting wordpress speed.

    WP Super Cache
    GZIP Output
    WP Minify
    W3 Total Cache
    Free CDN
    DB Cache
    WP Smush.it

    So, Which one do you think the most effective plugin among all these?

    I'm not sure how many people have installed all of those and are able to tell you which is best.

    You are correct on one point tho, you cannot install all of them. Cache plugins will most likely conflict with one another.

    I use W3 total cache with a good amount of success

    RV, well obviously you would need to install them one at a time to test them one by one.

    We've been using w3 total cache and we're really happy with it

    I was under the impression the OP was asking the question to try to avoid that.......

    Thanks for your responses.

    Well, Yeah. I asked because I think its good to make a use of others' experience about something. Helps to save time and avoid troubles.
    Maybe one day I'll just go ahead and test more of these plugins.

    For a long time I've thought that WP Super Cache is the winning horse, But guess I'm wrong.

    I've heard a lot of good things about super cache.... I may have had it configured wrong or something, I just couldn't get it right....

    Alright, I've tried W3 Total Cache, And here's few issues that I had.

    First, The ad units made by "AdSense Managers" shows only the unit name in the post page (e.g. [ad#BottomAd])

    Issue #2: Once I have enabled the plugin (Even before enabling caching) The plugins page doesn't complete loading

    Here's how it looks like: http://img198.imageshack.us/img198/5893/pluginsj.jpg

    So, I can't even disable it! And of course when I move/delete the plugin from the plugins directory, The blog crashes.

    I have used most of them in tests and finally settled with Quick Cache becasue of the results on my website.

    I am very happy with it, especially the new version.
