My site: https://mdavis.photos using LiteSpeed Cache. This is a Wordpress site.
I have enabled Rocker Loader and the minify areas of CloudFlare. Under LiteSpeed Cache I have tweaked, losslessly, images with some page optimizations. I have 10 plugins required by the theme. I have only 4 other plugins. Total plugins: 14.
I don’t see any improvement, in fact a degradation, with Rocket Loader. Perhaps my theme is just not efficient and it’s taking the time to load the java scripts too long for 90% scores in PageSpeed.
With GTmetrix, I see the following
There are 2 static components without a far-future expiration date.
So, I’m getting dinged for that in YSlow, getting a score of C (78). PageSpeed Scores is 99%
In PageSpeed Insights, I have a score of 65 (before Rocket Loader it was 76) with the following comments about Rocket Loader:
The Avoid comment has been there for several days now.
I also see this:
A long cache lifetime can speed up repeat visits to your page.

It honestly looks like if I were to remove the Rocket Loader, not only would my scores improve but my page times would be faster.
Does that make sense? Should I just uncheck the Rocket Loader?
