@andrewett Thank you, Andrew, for the hunt! Almost 25% of all websites on the internet are powered by Wordpress. People install it load tons of plugins because they need additional features and then realize that the site became slow. WPSpeedster is a side project I've created when I realized that there is no source on the internet where I can compare plugins when it comes to speed.

If I click the plugins from the menu the list appears, I dont see any plugin? How it's supposed to be used?

@asif2bd I don't see exactly what list do you mean, the most important list is probably this http://www.wpspeedster.com/plugi... you can see plugins with the biggest impact on speed here. If you click the name, you'll be redirected to test details page. If you want to download particular plugin you can do so directly from WP or click the download link on WPSpeedster which will redirect you to WP plugins repository.

@csaba_kissi Yes, thats exactly the list I am looking at. But I dont see much plugins there. Like the first one - http://www.wpspeedster.com/plugi... this is not a plugin. Or I dont see any known plugins. Sorry if I am missing something very core. I do see popular plugins like Yoast SEO, Akismet, Jetpack etc if I click Sort by popularity.

@asif2bd Seems that "Play video by Song" has been removed from the WP repository and is no longer listed. The best way to use the site is to look for you favorite plugins you use on your own WP powered site and look at their speed analysis. Then you can decide to keep it or change it to something with similar features but faster.

I was just trying to find a fast, lightweight WP template the other day and got frustrated so I gave up. Looking forward to trying this!

Seems that uglier the faster? you should remove not updated themes for instance. But love the concept, good job.
