Unusable Image Compression Results - rocketdocket - 10-27-2014 02:31 AM

Why does WebPageTest show image compression results with suggestions that will have minimal impact on page load speed? Here are a few examples. Notice that some of the suggestions result in improvements of 0 k.

The savings for those images are just below the rounding threshold which means only a few bytes. The overall grade is based on the % of bytes that can be saved so it doesn't really impact the grade. I can tweak the UI to not show any where the savings are < 100 bytes.
