Caching Statistics

Advanced metrics about your site’s performance help diagnose previously unknown performance issues with your web server, MySQL, PHP, or page content.

Eliminate render-blocking CSS

By moving CSS into the HTTP body, the number of requests are smaller, and allows the page to load much faster.
