Hi Fooman
Thanks for this extension and for making it free.
I installed it a while ago and it seems to have speeded things up as expected.  However, since the install the average page load time as reported by Google webmaster tools has gradually increased from about 3.6 seconds to its current level of 7.3 seconds.

I’m not sure why this is.  Has anyone else reported the same?
If not, do you have any idea why googlebot seems to be taking longer to load?

Thanks in advance
Tim

Further to my initial post, when I do a Ctrl-f5 in firefox to reload various pages the load time is usually between about 9 and 12 seconds.

Does the googlebot do the equivalent when it crawls - i.e. not caching anything.  I\’m worried this is going to hit my rankings if google believes the site is a slow loader, even if it it loads fast for users.
