  • Hi Roy, both wp-ffpc and w3 total cache both do page caching albeit in different ways. The advantage of wp-ffpc (and the reason why I choose it myself) is that caching is offloaded to the nginx webserver and doesn’t involve wordpress which makes this a very fast solution. With w3 total cache the caching is handled by the plugin in wordpress. W3 total cache offers more functionality than wp-ffpc because it also does css/js minification, cdn support etc … These functions need to be supplied by other plugins if you need them and you want to use wp-ffpc. I use the following set of plugins that work well with wp-ffpc (not that wp-ffpc is very finicky, its just the set I’ve found works without any issues):
    – WP S3 Offload, uploads media files to S3 and CloudFront CDN
    – MinQueue, lovely plugin that gives a lot of control on minification and concatenation of css and js

    This set gives you similar features as w3 total cache
