Minify CSS and JS with Autoptimize

A common piece of advice when it comes to optimizing the browser performance of your website is to concatenate and minify your CSS and JavaScript. There are many reasons and place you’ll see this recommended but Google PageSpeed Insights was the one that spurred me to action. And for me, I settled on a WordPress plugin called “Autoptimize” to make it easier for me to do it on this site. Autoptimize, if it’s not obvious, is a combination of the words “automatic” and “optimize”, and that’s just what it is, easy optimization of thing that are hard for non-developers to do.
