This is best cache plugin I am using from last 3-4 years for my wordpress blogs. It is too much easy to configure with automatic options are available. If you are not an expert in configuring plugins then just check the checkbox which are recommended in the settings. You also get a primary CDN support to deliver your javascript and css assets faster.

WP-Optimize – Clean, Compress, Cache

This all-in-one plugins to have features that cleans your database, compresses your images and caches your site. You can skip WP Super Cache if you are going to use this plugin. You can use both plugins at a time but we recommend to use only one plugin at a time for caching.

Best feature this plugin have is database cleanup. If you update your posts two three times before posting then it have revisions for each update. The utility of database cleanup clean all those updates and keep only latest copy of your post. It will really help to deliver the content fast by reducing database transactions.

Next best feature of this plugins is image compression. Yes, it compress your image by keeping the good quality. The size of image is almost compressed up to 75% without quality degrade.
