WebCrusher 1.5 shipping
RAGE Software has launched WebCrusher 1.5, a major update to its Website optimization software. The program helps reduce a site's load time, providing faster overall performance by scanning entire websites, including page files and image files, and then intelligently removing all extraneous code for optimum performance. Version 1.5 adds speed improvements, especially for larger websites, along with enhanced CSS optimizations and fixes for PHP file optimization.
WebCrusher is especially suited for iWeb-based websites, which have a tendency towards large file sizes and slow-loading images. Users can initiate the optimization process with one click, while the program works with iWeb, RapidWeaver, DreamWeaver and Rage WebDesign sites.
The new version requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and is now available for $50.
