Breeze – WordPress Cache Plugin


Breeze is a free, simple (yet powerful) and user-friendly WordPress Caching Plugin developed by the Cloudways team. It offers various options to optimize WordPress performance at various levels. It works equally great with WordPress, WordPress with WooCommerce and WordPress Multisite.

Breeze excels in the following areas:

  • Performance: Breeze improves website speed and resource optimization. Other features include file level cache system, database cleanup, minification, support for Varnish cache and simplified CDN integration options.

  • Convenience: Breeze is easy to install and configure directly from WordPress. Configuring Breeze is easy and most of the default options work well right out of the box. The recommended settings should work on all your WordPress websites seamlessly.

  • Simplicity: Breeze is designed to be simple for all users. Just install and activate the plugin and you’ll see the results instantaneously.

I've been using this caching plugin for 2 years now. I've tried many many many other caching plugins, including premium plugins like WP Rocket, and honestly this free plugin beats all of them, including the premiums.

I use this plugin specifically for its minification success. It doesn't have all the options I need for full page caching, so I leave that off. Overall, very very happy with this.
