Do more then expected.

Ease of use

Kinda easy had no problem.

Good. But made everything without it :)

I used this to: We are creating a database of veterinary, animal husbandry and pet care product manufacturers, distributors and wholesalers. Use it on my site.

Functionality

A lot of features to compress css, javascript, minification, etc

Ease of use

Just install and configure it, it's a matter of few minutes. Just found some conflicts with other extensions using javascript not solved

Support

They tried to solve conflicts but was not possible, in some cases i had to keep the plugin disabled

Documentation

What's needed

I used this to: All my websites, especially to optimize on mobile

Functionality

This product is the best I've ever used. Really does what it says. I use it for hotel booking websites.

Ease of use

This optimizer is very easy to use, you just have to tweak here and there, not all joomla sites are the same.

Support

Not only is the product great but the support is even better. They really help me get my website to function to it's fullest potential.

Documentation

All you need is there.

I used this to: I use this for all my websites and would really recommend this product to everyone.

Functionality

Unlike many such optimizers for previous Joomla versions, this one offers more options, works flawlessly and you can measure actual resuls

Ease of use

Pretty straightforward. If you know what you want, all the options are there, mostly as easy ON/OFF switches.

Documentation

Everything is documented well enough in tooltips, didn't need more than that.

I used this to: As a faculty webmaster, I work in an environment where every single percent of additional compression, optimization and bandwidth saving is important. This plugin does an awesome job out of the box, and will probably do even better once I test those really advanced options.

Amazing Support

I had a bit of trouble getting the settings optimized, so paid for the Pro version and got AMAZING support. A very worthwhile investment!

Ease of use

The developer made it quite easy to try different configurations by setting up 6 different 'automatic settings' to test with.
