At Townend we tested mod-pagespeed, the new module from Google, and found an average 20% speed improvement across the sites we tested. As expected, there’s little performance gain on already heavily optimised code but the slightly scrappier code on this website produced the highest gain in speed of 33.6%.

Update – since we wrote the review, the module has been causing random crashes so we have temporarily disabled it while we investigate further to avoid any downtime.
