Can optimize and almost double your site speed!

Killed the goose, no more eggs
By , for WP 4.0

UPDATE: A 2* downgrade due to the lack of updates and a fair degree of unpredictability in what functionality works on a given day. A further -2* for the sheer obnoxiousness of the pop-ups. Limit your plugin to 30 days, consult, write other software, get unemployment, I don't care: this is the worst side of WP I've seen. A disgrace to the platform.

In summary, it was nice to play around with for a while, but you'll be giving yourself an unnecessary headache installing this on a proper client's site. Let the web server and its extensions do the job they were designed for in terms of caching.

It's a nice plugin that does what it says. It's also fairly well-written, so it's easy to understand what it's doing even if you're not that familiar with WP.

One major downside is the lack of documentation. The big FAQ is nice, but for a fairly complex bit of software like that, each option should be documented.

Hence 4/5.
