Minify web assets


A web page comprises various assets, such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and third-party libraries like jQuery, Bootstrap etc. Minification removes unnecessary or redundant data without affecting how the resource is processed by the web browser.


Minify web assets to reduce page size and network bandwidth while delivering the content. At scale, even a small reduction in size can have a significant impact.
