Almost crashed my site on 4.5.2
By , for WP 4.5.2

Don't use with this version of wordpress. Too bad it doesn't work.

Very Effective
By , for WP 4.3.1

It improved a lot the speed of my site, with google page speed from around 75/77 to a steady 85/88. I run a wordpress+woocommerce on a small droplet in Digital Ocean. The theme is very feature rich and has been since the start a bit slow, I did first optimize the droplet and the wp htaccess, nevertheless because I was not able to move from the header the many scripts I always got mixed results in testing and a medium speed. Using this plugin together with wp super cache seems that gave a big boost. Thank you.

How do I remove this?

How do I remove this plugin without damaging my site? None of my slideshows work

Far better than expected, real results
By , for WP 3.9.2

I am not a programmer - backend PHP/SQL literate - at all. I have had bad experiences with an optimizer. So I am even more extremely cautious about anything that starts talking scripts or db tables, etc. But I needed to get something. I have far too many plugins and all sorts of messes.

I could be stupidly wrong:
I didn't like the "Concatenate" "Minify" descriptions on other plugins. They totally rewrite scripts. Among other things, this one said "groups scripts" together, so I took that as somehow different. It read like it organizes instead of invasive level rehauling.

Anyway, it works:
You do not deal with settings at all. Immediate speed - I am stunned. It is like I don't have 100 plugins loading it down. Like new. I have had not yet had a break in the design, functions, nor seen lines of script show up on my website nor the admin area.

Thank you for a plug that us simple folk can use.

CSS minification is broken
By , for WP 3.8.1

After you enable compression CSS design of the site has changed. Processing js nothing broke, but the CSS is completely broken.

Backfired
By , for WP 3.8

My load time had come down to 8 seconds , after installing this it shot up to 23 seconds.

Right on!
By , for WP 3.7.1

Works like a charm for me.

I NEVER REVIEW ANYTHING, Seriously.
By , for WP 3.7.1

I tried all the top caching and gzip compression plugins. This is by *FAR* the greatest one. Simple interface, easy to understand and actually made a noticeable page load difference. This Increased my webpage speed on google's - PageSpeed Insights by 30 points immediately.

Highly Highly recommended, support this plugin!

Great minification plugin

Skeptical and astounded
By , for WP 3.6.1

I haven't looked through the code yet but it works as advertised and I quite like the results. Good job guy(s)!
