Great Speed But Complicated
By , for WP 4.1

W3 has significantly increased the speed of our site. However, it is a bloated plugin and complicated to setup. We have since switched to Supercache.

It's Just Like It Isn't There
By , for WP 4.0.1

I use the plugin to make a website that I hold faster via caching. Not much minification or other types of optimization.

It does what it says it would do and it does it as unobtrusively as possible so long as you get some of your server-side settings right.

I'm sure there's a lot more to this plugin since I haven't tried everything yet (still have to get on with using a CDN) and I think that's one last great thing I saw in this one.

Really worth giving a shot!

Somewhat confusing with so many options, but seems to cache well :)

Somewhat confusing with so many options, but seems to perform well using the default settings. The nag/popup telling me to support the plugin is pretty annoying...

Looking good so far...

I'll change this once I see some results...

ANNOYING Admin pop up.

You would get 5 Stars, but not for this pop-up!

I've had to take it off 2 sites because of incompatibility issues.
