Why minify my WordPress site?

WP-Optimize’s Minify feature is all about increasing the speed of your WordPress site for your users.

One way Minify does this is by reducing the size of your HTML, CSS and JavaScript files such as removing unnecessary spaces and lines from the files.

Another way is that your files are merged into as few files as possible. This reduces the amount of load on your web server and can be quicker to load fewer files.

You can also defer the loading of any CSS or JavaScript file. This means any large or extraneous CSS or JavaScript file can be loaded independently from the core of your WordPress site; giving your users quicker access to your site.
