Will maybe destroy your site while minimizing images
By , for WP 4.2.2

EWWW image optimizer made me restore my site from backups: after optimizing images it broken every single link to an image in every blogpost (appended many different image filenames to every image path).

This changes are not even "Revision" tracked, so the only way was to restore from backup.

It also have naming issues when "converting jpg to png", "png to jpg", if you choose to restore original files.

I'm still using this addon: it does the job really well. Minifies images automatically. This time I have disabled "png to jpg" etc "difficult" options, fingers crossed it will not kill my site again.

If it will kill it, I have my backups ready. So should you!

Didn't help at all

Made less than 2% difference on all files, and when I tested with gtmetrix there was 0% improvement on loading speed. Not very impressed.
