Online Javascript Minifier

This is a slightly modified Silverlight based version of Douglas Crockford’s JSMIN Javascript minifier. It removes whitespaces and comments to make download speeds slightly faster for high bandwidth sites. It doesn’t obfuscate the script, which is a trickier process. If you know how to execute Java JARs on the command line, you might consider the YUI compressor too. Or alternatively Dean Edward’s packer, which comes as a windows GUI application with lots of options.
