[4:10 PM] HTML Optimizer Updated With Lots Of New Features
by Staff

MacZ Software has released a new version of OptimaHTML, bringing the web page optimizer to version 2.0. OptimaHTML strips out unnecessary HTML code to make web pages download and render faster. The new version includes many new features and other enhancements. According to MacZ:

MacZ Software has released OptimaHTML 2.0, a powerful tool for optimizing html files. OptimaHTML reduces the size of web pages by eliminating unneeded tags, carriage returns and spaces. It can also remove style tags, meta tags and other tags, defined by the user. New features in version 2.0 include a totally new user interface, support for Server Side Include (SSI) tags, support for custom meta tags, and support for documents with embedded JavaScript.

Main new features in version 2.0

  • Totally renewed user interface (UI): simpler, cooler, and more logical. Every basic window and dialog has title beam with window's name
  • Added support for optimization documents with embedded JavaScript
  • Added ability to add custom meta tags, defining also their attributes' values, or setting Asterisk mode on (removes all attributes with all values)
  • Made picture files's preview into the application itself - browser isn't longer needed for this task
  • Made option to select browser, which will be used in previewing HTML files
  • Added support for all SSI tags, for example <!--#exec file..-->
  • Added support for all scripting languages and versions (all which's closing tag is </script>)
  • Added removal of many authoring redundant tags
  • Added support for <PRE>...</PRE> tags (carriage returns and spaces aren't removed from inside these tags)
  • Added removal of zero-valued 'HSpace' and 'VSpace' tags
  • Added the creator code of MacZ Software TextWorks Office to Preferences' file creator list, so optimized files may now be saved as TextWorks documents
  • Added the ".shtml" and ".shtm" file extensions to default file extensions list. These file extensions are used in HTML files, which use Server Side Include (SSI) scripts
  • Removed the removal of spaces before and after quotes ("). Although this doesn't change appearance of HTML document, it's still against HTML Specification
  • Made a status text , which tells user about running optimization process's stage

You can find more information on the product at the company's web site. The update is free to registered owners while the full version is priced at US$10.
