Here’s what you can expect in this brand-new version:
- Preload Links
This new feature improves perceived performance. In other words, how fast a user thinks your website is. WP Rocket 3.7 uses an early prefetch strategy to detect and preload the URLs a user is about to visit. As a result, the user will perceive pages linked by those URLs as loading instantly!
- Improved Core Web Vitals
WP Rocket 3.7 is making good progress in meeting these new standards. For example, by automatically adding
font-display:swapto CSS files containing a font-face, they instruct the browser to use a system font while the custom font is being downloaded. Once the download is complete, the system font is replaced with the custom font. This way, they improve rendering time and user experience (UX), also avoiding the “flash of invisible text”.
Finally, they made the interface as clear as possible by removing HTML Minification and Google Fonts Optimization which is now enabled by default.
Pricing, Support & Updates
WP Rocket pricing starts from as low as $49 for a single site. They are charging $99 for up to 3 sites and $249 for unlimited sites. All plans come with one year of free support and updates.
Please note that they are providing a 14 days money-back guarantee. Thus, you can test their feature-rich WordPress caching plugin risk-free. What are you waiting for?
