Caching plugin with fine tuning possibilities. It works as advertised, with a lot of settings and exclusion possibilities

Ease of use

Caching isn't easy and 'out of the box' solutions don't give you the best result. JCH gives you granulated settings and makes it easy

Support

Top notch Support! I know many good supporters but JCH is faster and solves the problem in a glance. A huge thumbs up!

Documentation

I really don't know... It is almost self explanatory and if I can't figure it out JCH support helps right away!

I used this to: Caching. I do recommend buying the pro version and support the JCH Optimize plugin!

Nice and cool
