Despite the axe that another reviewer has to grind, this is an excellent web development tool. I have used it on four different sites now and it is effective, stable and produces the results that it advertises.

I'm not going to quibble with the calibration of the statistics it reports. I build very heavy, image loaded, visual and large websites. WebCrusher's algorithms for optimizing jpgs and pngs is nothing short of remarkable. Once optimized, my sites load as fast as a speeding bullet and are very stable.

It's preferences panel has a very easy GUI so you can toggle what you want crushed or not. You can also vary the degree in which images are reduced and it gives a preview of what it might look like. The final report after optimization is very thorough.

I give this software high recommendation. BTW, the support is timely and very responsive.

"Misleading Optimization Report"

WebCrusher produces a final optimization report that shows a Percentage Saved practically twice as large as the real percentage!

When you optimize your website folder, WebCrusher first displays the (correct) Original Size and the Optimized Size of your files, plus a Percentage Saved.
For example:

index.html, orig. size 3775 bytes, opt. size 3512 bytes, saved 6.97%
image.png, orig. size 148006 bytes, opt. size 145748 bytes, saved 1.53%
style.css, orig. size 1087 bytes, opt. size 910 bytes, saved 16.28%

However, the final optimization report mentions in the Details section:

index.html, orig. size 4038 bytes, opt. size 3512 bytes, saved 13.03%
image.png, orig, size 150264 bytes, opt. size 145748 bytes, saved 3.01%
style.css, orig. size 1264 bytes, opt. size 910 bytes, saved 28.01%

By a magic touch the original sizes (!) have been increased, so that the Percentage Saved becomes almost twice its real value. Didn't the people from WebCrusher detect this error?
By the way, the program's performance is 10 times slower than its competitors Web Site Maestro and HTML-Optimizer Plus.
