Pack and minimize your JavaScript code size

In pursue for my JavaScript code performance and some questions on jQuery mailing list I looked for and eventually came across some of the JavaScript code packers. Here is a list of custom JavaScript code compressors available for free.

  1. YUI Compressor (from Yahoo)
  2. JSMin (by Douglas Crockford)
  3. ShrinkSafe  (from Dojo library)
  4. Packer (by Dean Edwards)

According to general opinion of developers on the net (and jQuery official site) you should use Yahoo's YUI Compressor to compress your jQuery and JavaScript code.
