We needed this plugin as part of our infrastructure to re-host and preview pagespeed optimization results on the fly.



In 2010, web applications commonly would deliver content that was far from optimized for bandwidth or latency. We-Amp was founded on the idea that web content could be automatically optimized for delivery, which back then was a fairly novel concept. The company launched in 2012 in tandem with landing a partnership with Google, who back then had started out on a similar mission with "their make the web faster initiative". We-Amp joined the mission to materialize ngx_pagespeed - a port of its Apache counterpart to NGINX. We-Amp has played a major role in materializing and supporting this web module. In tandem, We-Amp developed and launched it's IIS port, bringing the full power of PageSpeed optimization to the Microsoft platform.
