I installed it and my gtmetrix score went from an F to a C. Then I tried to add a new plugin. I'm on WP 4.9.4, Genesis 3.0.2 and PHP 7.1.30 The result? Couldn't bring up any plugins. ☹ At all. Had to disable it.

Doesn't seem to illicit a good response from GT Matrix (D-F). Default settings are not optimal for many WordPress sites. Needs ability to fine-tune individual expiration settings from within the Settings. Can't full recommend as it could actually HARM your rating rather than help it in some cases.
