The configuration page can be found in STORES → CONFIGURATION → AITOC EXTENSIONS → SPEED OPTIMIZATION.

General Settings

Here set to 'Yes' to enable the extension quickly.

JS Settings

In this section, you can change settings of Javascript files optimization.

Field Specification
Enabled To run the optimization, set the JS option to Enabled.
Merge JavaScript files It reduces the number of requests to a server and thereby improves page speed.
Merge inline scripts Inline scripts are those that are described inside HTML.
Enable compression Enable this option to minify Javascript content. Minification means that all space symbols, line breaks, tabulation and comments will be eliminated, as a browser does not need them to recognize the code. The compressed file will obviously have a smaller size and load faster.
Inline small JS It’s better to insert content of small CSS/JS files right into HTML document.
Defer parsing of JS Google PageSpeed service recommends moving declaration of JS/CSS to the end of the body, which is called Defer Parsing of Javascript. As a result, a user will see page content faster.
