Javascript – Good tool to minimize HTML footprint


Does anyone know a good tool that can be run on a page (for, for example) to help to minimize the footprint size of the page?

The page will have typical items: HTML, Javascript, etc.

I've heard of Javascript crunchers in the past, that will make the size of the code as compact as possible (and obfuscate it, I suppose).

The goal is to help optimize the page size (make it as small as possible for speed, without changing anything).

Is this possible?

Best Solution

You could configure your web server to compress the page on the fly (and possibly cache the compressed version) for any client that indicates it can take a gzip or zip (or other) encoding, which is pretty much all of them.
