    I'm thinking about a program to speed up a couple of websites I made on iWeb.

    I'm a point and click guy.

    I've come across:
    Webcrusher and Website Maestro

    Optimizing page load times of websites can be somewhat tricky. I tend to do it all by hand, right down to tweaking web server settings. So, I don't have any suggestions for programs that do this, but there are a few guides around that may help. Yahoo's guide is pretty good.

    Google also has an Apache Module, mod_pagespeed, which does a lot of the magic you're looking for. As far as I know, this is currently available on dreamhost and soon godaddy.

    Edit: For static content, there's nothing tricky about it. The techniques are dead-simple.

    We installed mod_pagespeed on one of my servers for about 5 minutes a few months back. It ended up crashing our server and causing havoic. It's was still in Beta but I don't know if I want to go back there.
