CSS optimization application review

David from bloggingpro.com wrote up an interesting article that compares four different CSS optimization products (CSS Optimizer, Icey’s CSS Compressor, Flumpcakes CSS Optimizer, and CleanCSS).

Here are the results of his tests on five different sites (Digg.com, Slashdot, Filmsy, iBegin, Download.com, and ESPN).
