It really does work
By , for WP 3.5.1

Increased my site speed and rating about 20%. On other sites with heavy CSS and JS it did better.

I also use .htaccess code to gzip/zip thes file types js/css/txt/html which boosted the response time further.
Furthermore, add caching and you'll have a site that will be more responsive.

Here's my secret code that doubles up the gains.

# compress text, HTML, JavaScript, CSS, and XML
# the server needs to support compression
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/plain
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/css
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xhtml+xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/rss+xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/javascript
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-javascript

# Turn on Expires and set default expires to 3 days
ExpiresActive On
ExpiresDefault A259200

# Set up caching on media files for 1 week
<FilesMatch "\.(ico|gif|jpg|jpeg|png|flv|pdf|swf|mov|mp3|wmv|ppt)$">
ExpiresDefault A604800
Header append Cache-Control "public"
</FilesMatch>

# Set up 2 days caching on commonly updated files
<FilesMatch "\.(xml|txt|html|js|css)$">
ExpiresDefault A193000
Header append Cache-Control "private, must-revalidate"
</FilesMatch>

Awesome Performance Plugin
By , for WP 3.5

I use wp-minify alone or in combination with other plugins to increase the performance of my wp sites, sure sometimes it doesn't work as it should, but that's mostly because of themes using css in weird ways or pulling javascript at weird points, like this css has to come before this one, and so wp-minify breaks the site, but besides this things, it works flawlessly and its a matter of adjusting (turning off for javascript or something), awesome job!

Works Better than the 'Better WordPress Minify' Plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

I did a few tests with Pingdom's "Full Page Test", and WP Minify came out just a little better. I hope to now speed up some sites!

This one works

I tried some other minify plugin. This one worked out of the box, the others didn't

The pretty url option should be easier too see on admin page. It is a great feature!

It is present only in the advanced section
