  1. Hi Brian!

    Just found out about your Perfmatters plugin. I remember the KeyCDN days. Really cool to see you started something yourself ๐Ÿ™‚

    No longer recommending CAOS to everyone, huh!? :'( Instead you created your own implementation. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Anyway, just stopped by to say: ‘Hi!’

    All the best,

    • Hey Daan!
      Oh man, ya, it’s been a while since my KeyCDN days.

      I still recommend CAOS to those who don’t want our solution. ๐Ÿ™‚ The WordPress space is enormous, so having more plugins helping speed up the web is a good thing, in my opinion.

      But yes, we decided to roll our own simply because we can combine many of our other performance optimizations/tweaks into one plugin, instead of juggling a bunch of them. It started out as a hobby/project on our own sites and gradually morphed into what it is now.

      Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are doing well.
