couldn't care less about it.
By , for WP 4.5.3

I'm all for reviewing great software, and I had once installed the plugin when I set up my site, then noticed that it slowed down my site considerably and deactivated it the very next day.
Now, months later, I want to give it another try and am being forced to tweet or review this plugin. Well, I'd probably have left a better review, had you not blackmailed me into it, essentially blocking my screen with this ransomware act popover screen. So there. Still haven't tested the damn thing and don't feel inclined to use it anymore. It might be the best there is, but I've trashed it, thank you very much.

Works well, but obnoxious/intrusive pop-up

Dear developers, free isn't "... but do these things for me or I'll keep bothering you."

You'd get more stars if you could exercise a little more restraint/subtlety.

good

minify breaks front end sometimes and they are obliging a link in the footer ( either link or post social media or this review to proceed with cache empty ( new version, older version not like this)

Fast but Annoying
By , for WP 4.5.3

Good speed, annoying pop-ups and messages.

Works ok but really needs full version
By , for WP 4.5.3

Full version too expensive

Overkill for basic projects

If you have a well built theme, WP Super cache does everything you need much more easily. Can't beat this for features, though!

Good plugin but it could be better and simpler

Good performance, but improvements needed
By , for WP 4.5.2

Works generally good,

but supprot for layered slider is poor, maxcdn slows down site to over 3s. Recommendation turn of MAXCDN and use cloudflare, if Layered slider is used, try js minify of cloudflare and turn of w3 total cache minify, other wise it breaks.
Unfortunately no support on this issue...
