[resolved] Do I still need W3 Total Cache? (3 posts)

    Seeing that Wordfence has it's own caching system built in, do I still require W3 Total Cache?

    Wordfence Falcon is designed to be a replacement for W3.

    I installed Wordfence and like the security but I don't know about Falcon. It boosted about some great speed increases, but... I just switched to Falcon and getting much slower speed reports from Google PageSpeed Insights and Pingdom. Previously I was using W3 Total Cache and Cloudflare and getting pretty decent speed scores of 90+.

    Now Adsense thinks my site is much slower.
