In this three part series I will detail the plugins I use when creating a wordpress site. In this part I will go over the plugins that can greatly increase your sites loading speed.

cSprites works in the same manner, except this time it works with images. It adds all your images into one big image and adds the appropriate CSS to make it work. The reason to do this is that if you have 20 images in your design and posts, your browser has to send a request for each image individually, resulting in some significant lag time.
You probably don’t need it unless your have 10k+ monthly views or get hit by Digg, but to be on the save side using WP Super Cache will generate static html files of all your posts and pages. This way each time someone comes your server does not have to process all the dynamic data from the database.
