WordPress Assets manager, dequeue scripts, dequeue styles

Description

You should know that, a lot of WordPress plugins developers forget performance when creating plugins. This means that a lot of them load self scripts/styles on every single post and or page of your site. This is not good, because it slows your site down.

That’s why we created the WP Asset manager, with it, you can choose which scripts and styles should be loaded on the page, and which ones do not. One example of this would be with the Contact Form 7 plugin. With two clicks you can disable it everywhere except for on your contact page.

THIS PLUGIN’S BENEFITS INCLUDE

Decreases number of HTTP requests loaded (important for faster load)
Reduces the HTML code of the actual page (that’s even better if GZIP compression is enabled)
Makes source code easier to scan in case you’re a developer and want to search for something
Remove possible conflicts between plugins/theme (e.g. 2 JavaScript files that are loading from different plugins and they interfere one with another)
Better performance score if you test your URL on websites such as GTmetrix, PageSpeed Insights, Pingdom Website Speed Test
Google will love your website more as it would be faster and fast page load is nowadays a factor in search ranking
Your server access log files (e.g the Apache ones) will be easier to scan and would take less space on your server

We used some useful functions from plugins Asset Queue Manager, WP Asset CleanUp (Page Speed Optimizer), Clearfy – disable unused features, wp disable, Disabler, Admin Tweaks

I love what this plugin does, but it takes a while to figure out how to use it. The on/off switches are counter-intuitive, and there's no good global settings page. I also wonder if any of Clearfy / Webcraftic's plugins are actively supported as many their free WordPress plugins are out of date. It's weird that they have Pro versions which they want people to pay for when their Free versions are only updated to WordPress 5.3.x. Doesn't look like they've been touched for a year.

Sorry, normally only rate with 5 stars when I think a plugin is awesome. Rating this 4 stars because I think it's counter-intuitive. Maybe it's just me.
