Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

Aimed at Web designers who are extraordinarily sensitive to page-loading times, this application helps strip away potentially unneeded data from graphics and HTML files. Once running, the program opens a small window where users can select folders or files to be compressed. It operates by stripping away particular tags and attributes of files, embedded text or comments, noncritical color data, unneeded spaces, tabs, or extensions.

Novice users should take care, as some of these tags and file attributes can be important, and their loss could in some cases disrupt display. In the era of broadband, this kind of minor tweaking plays less of a role, but Web designers focusing on mobile or dial-up surfers may find StripFile a useful utility.

Developer's Description

Do you have a Web site? Then speed it up with Stripfile, a simple tool which cuts GIF, JPEG, PNG and HTML files down to size (gains can range from a few bytes to 50% or more). The program removes the redundant information these files often contain, helping your pages load more quickly and reducing bandwidth requirements. Integrates with Explorer, too--just right-click on a selected file or folder, then click 'Strip' to begin compression.
