    I just noticed in this site "http://compressorrater.thruhere.net/" that the best compressor is the one called Packer from this site "http://dean.edwards.name/packer/" . On manual tests, it gave me the best compression ratings. So, I just would like to see it implemented on your plugin if possible.

    One other good thing to get JS scripts even smaller is the replacement of variables and names to smaller ones, I mean, for example, say you have a function named "myFunction", you could just replace it to "a", it get a lot smaller. So, you could see something about it here "http://javascriptobfuscator.com/Default.aspx"

    Here, another online tool that offer minification techniques.


    And here, a complete resource about optimizations for size reduction of JS:

    The best compressor IMO, is YUI from Yahoo!, which is already implemented in Autoptimize, but requires java installed and some extra steps.
    Packer is a good option too, and has a PHP port, so it shouldn't be that hard to implement. I'll try to support it too.

    Thanks for the suggestion!
