Merge, minify is much better. it uses variables in the URL to show new versions of files. For your information this is the WordPress approach. It is the best because, Googlebot understands it and it does not create a 404 or a 302 when a CSS file or a JS file is refreshed.
To my knowledge this plugin is the only one with this approach.
It is super simple. The developer of this plugin didn’t add useless features. i like it.
You just install and it is ready out of the box. We don’t need other features. We need this plugin to remain efficient with new versions and to remain the best as it is now.
I can see that in the background, this plugin does a great job. It reduces the number of files to the minimum and it is really lightweight.
By far, this plugin is the best Merge, minify wordpress plugin
