Makes JS load async
By , for WP 4.0.1

It worked out fine! I wanted to load my script async to increase performance and the scoring in Google PageSpeed Insights.

It worked out pretty good and simple with this plugin.

It still generates 1 script that doesn't load async though. But I guess there is no simple way to integrate that inline!?

Caused Fatal Error upon installation

Yep. Kicked out a gnarly error on WP 4.0.1. Oh well.

Tested Asynchronous Javascript on our website. It lowered page speed by two points on google page speed and did not remove the javascript render blocking warning.

Love It!

I use your plugin together with the other two (WP Deferred JavaScripts and WP Fastest Cache). They all have helped to improve the page loading time tremendously well.

I have mentioned all the three plugins over [Moderator note: Please don't put links in your review]

Thank you so much.

Works great

I tried some other, but they provided more issues than they solved. This one just works. Thanks!

Works but breaks some JS and nothing about CSS
By , for WP 3.6

This plugin is a good idea as many speed tests shows error about JS and CSS that are not asynchronous.

But :
- Some of my JS were broken by the plugin (Layer Slider)
- Nothing is done about CSS so you still have the problem. Installing one more plugin for CSS, pfff

Good luck for your work

This plugin is amazing. It took 14 render-blocking javascript files and made them async. Didn't even have to set anything up. Great job!!

Brilliant plugin, really does wonders for page load time...
By , for WP 3.5.1

This is an excellent plugin.

I'm always a little dubious installing new plugins that have not been fully tested by the community but glad I chose this one.

It does wonders on increasing DOM page load, support is fast and developer is willing to help add new features if requested.

Keep up the good work Paris and thanks for coding.
