Simple yet powerful extension to speed up your store instantly !
I strongly recommend this extension if you want to reduce your page loading speed and improve your site performance. After minifying and combining the css and js, it reduces 3-4 seconds in our total page loading time. Considering the image optimization, the image compression Linux library packages (jpegoptim, gifsicle, optipng) are incompatible with the Linux version we use Linux version 2.6.32-279.el6.x86_64 (Red Hat 4.4.6-4). So make sure to update these libraries based on your Linux Version. (It seems these libraries bundled with this extension support only 32 bit). This is the same with Windows it seems. If you experience "gifsicle is not executable" make sure to check your folder and file permissions for the path (lib/gtspeed/elf32) as well as check the compatability of these image packages based on your linux version.
Regarding the awful (hateful) reviews by some of the people who tried this extension below, make sure your JS and CSS follows the proper standards, if not when minifed and combined, it will break most likely. BTW kindly have some courtesy before you blame someone who provide something free and opensource and you should have a basic sense to try this (or any) 3rd party free (or paid extension) directly into your production environment.
Thank you very much Gossamer for this simple and spot on extension !

Great on Magento 1.7 but not on the newest releases
I tested this extension on different shops and it used to work like a charm - strangely it had better results on shared hosting than on vps.
Beside the bug conveniently fixed by pgulikers a few reviews down here, on Magento 1.9 it messes up even with the basic template so the css and js unification does not work.
It's a pity this extension is not supported anymore.

I installed this updated, but google didn't give me even a point more in speedtest. Also, althouh there are known bugs, no one fixes it and it crashes layout.
