JCH Optimize is a plugin that runs on Joomla and WordPress and optimize web page downloads by aggregating and minifying css and javascript files found in the head section of the web page. By combining these files together as one you minimize the total amount of http connections that has to be made in downloading a webpage and utlimately reduce the total download time. The download is further optimized and speedened by an option to minify the aggregated css or javascript file or even the html output.
