PageSpeed Service was turned off on August 3rd, 2015. Please see Turndown Information for PageSpeed Service.

In addition to the rewriters explicitly selected, PageSpeed Service provides the following capabilities by default.


To assist in troubleshooting, PageSpeed Service can be put into debug mode. Here, PageSpeed Service will inject a variety of HTML comments with potentially useful information. It will also attempt to serve injected JavaScript without minification.

To enable the debug facility, append ?PagespeedFilters=+debug to your request URL.


Content served by PageSpeed Service is compressed using gzip to reduce the bytes sent over wire, especially for HTML, text, CSS and JavaScript. We also selectively compress responses only for those user agents that are known to support Gzip, to ensure it works correctly on all user agents. This feature implements the PageSpeed rule for minimizing payload size.

HTML cleanup

PageSpeed Service removes unnecessary tags, duplicate styles, etc. from HTML documents before serving them.


The initcwnd (initial value of TCP’s congestion window) is set to 10 for better utilization of available bandwidth over the network. Most other servers use an initcwnd value of 3 by default. See this article for more details.
