Web pages load an average of 7x faster with Squash Compression. Plus, you could cut the cost of your data plan in half.
Squash Compression is a first-of-breed, patent pending technology that optimizes Web pages for speed. It requires a monthly subscription of $4.95 per month. Imagine if you could put half the money you pay to your mobile provider for your data plan back into your pocket, for what you might spend on a coffee?
Let's say you request a Web page from squashcompression.com. Instead of communicating with the server behind squashcompression.com, you communicate with one of our proxy servers. That proxy server makes the request to the server behind squashcompression.com, rewrites the response to optimize for speed, and sends that optimized response to your device. For security and privacy reasons, your data sent over HTTP with SSL, such as when you do online banking, is not optimized... your data is simply relayed between your device and the destination server. Enterprise customers who like the idea of helping employees to be more productive, but who are concerned about any data running through our proxy servers, should contact us to discuss our enterprise solution that allows you to install our proxy software on your own servers.
The challenge is that the HTTP negotiation and downloading of separate external resources incurs unneeded time and bandwidth. Embedded styles and scripts bloat the size of the HTML content and do not leverage the benefits of caching. Individual images do not leverage the benefits of compression.
X number of CSS resources and embedded styles are consolidated into 1 CSS resource
X number of image resources are consolidated into between 1 and 3 image resources
Whole Context Removed
Squash Compression is aware of what styles and scripts the HTML output is referencing. Many times, modular development of styles and scripts leads to having the HTML output reference an entire style or script resource even though only a subset of that resource may be used (such as a style class or a script function). Squash Compression does not transmit any style or script context that is not referenced by the HTML output.
