A lot of functionnality: combine CSS files, combine JavaScript files, minify files, exclude files, sprite generator ...

Ease of use

Very simple to use: in pro version you have automatic settings


Top support


Complete documentation: tutorials, how the plugin works, plugin options, ...

I used this to: Really, for the price and the quality of the extension, it would be a mistake if you don't install it! ... and Samuel provides a fantastic support. So I give five stars for this plugin for: functionality, simplicity, and fantastic support!

This extension works wonders for whose who cherish good website performance. Even if you don't understand what this extension does, just go for the PRO version and it treats everything for you at a click. I am now ahead of my competitors with the rating my websites get from web analyzers.

I buy this extensión and is compatible with my web site, the performance is much better.

I bought the pro version, without understanding how better it could be! The plugin is the best! Pagespeed Insight tells that from 22/100 for mobiles, my site after installation is 67/100! Great plugin!

I wish I could describe with details this plugin, but my english are poor. I can say that this plugin is a must have for the site owners. I always wondering how to deal with gtmetrix's suggestions. But now I don't need to worry. I installed this plugin, configured it and my site goes faster. The pro-version is very cheap. And it worths it! Support is fast and kind. THANK YOU!

Intuitive and easy to use, significantly reduces the size of the page. The best extension of the genre. Indispensable!

Using this plugin and the excellent support I solved many tricky and hide problems of my site.

I do not have words to thank they enough!

My site now runs fast as never before! I reduced load time by three times!

The PRO version is very cheap and worth a lot!

Thanks again!


This is an excellent extension addressing key loading speed issues in a number of my joomla sites. It has improved loading speeds and overall performance of the site enormously. I had a few queries that arose in one instance and Sam dealt with them promptly providing a clear explanation and guidance that has enabled me to avoid such problems in the future. Simply excellent customer service.

Well worth the VERY small price to purchase the PRO version.

The dev has put together a very smart little plugin. Does what it says, and has enough options to handle each site's uniqueness.

My site, for example, took some TLC, but the developer stuck with it and figured out how to make it work.

My home page has now gone from 53 requests down to 23. Obviously, this speeds it up quite a bit and will also help pagerank.

Would recommend.
