Another Autoptimize Experiment; Extra’s

So with that nice little page cache experiment concluded, I started working on something that will definitively be included in the next version of Autoptimize; Extra Auto-optimizations!

You can read all about it below or you can skip all of that and immediately download the zipfile of the “AO Extra power-up” from the Github repository.

The 3 features available now;

  • remove Emoji’s
  • remove (version parameter from the) query string (not that big a deal, from a load time perspective, but still)
  • the ability to have Autoptimize add the async attribute to the local or 3rd party JavaScript (local JS-files will be excluded automatically if added here).

There’s one extra feature that will very likely be added; optimize Google Fonts (because removing them is considered harsh, apparently).

Do download, do test and do let me know if anything is broken in the comments or via my contact form. And If you have other ideas for extra features, do let me know too!
