Enhancements in Minify Plugin - Speed up your Website
Website owners are cautious about their website's speed and have constantly been searching for speed enhancement techniques to make their website load faster. To their help, we released the Minify Plugin - Speed up your Website last week and we have now come up with great enhancements in this plugin which will add to the website's speed.
Here is the overview of what we have implemented:
1) Gzip Compression:
Compression is an effective way to speed up the website. When a user visits the website and a request is made, a call is initiated to the server to deliver the requested files. The bigger these files are, the longer it's going to take for them to get to the browser and appear on the screen. Gzip method compresses such files which allow the web servers to provide smaller file sizes which load faster for the website users.
This enhancement in the Minify Plugin allows Gzip compression on the website by following a simple process. This can be done in plugin's admin panel.
Query Strings are URLs containing special characters '&' or '?', you might have come across such links while testing your website using Gtmetrix or Google's Page Speed tool. Query Strings contribute to the loading time of the webpage as these are not cached.
We have implemented a code in our Minify Plugin which will remove the query strings from the static resources. This change will greatly affect the page loading speed and the website will load much faster.
