How to improve your site speed on mobile devices
By default, Wordpress won't load your inactive plugins when someone visits your website. However, will load all your active plugins and then depending on each plugin will load the required scripts and stylesheets as well.
Literally speaking, a really good plugin will try to only load when needed.
The problem? With so many features and user options, it's very difficult for plugin developers to guess whether you will need the given plugin or not in a certain moment. And obviously, they have no choice, but to load all the required files just in case.
Wich will affect your loading time and your site speed results. Especially on mobile devices. This is why there is a constant buzz out there regarding the number of your active plugins and their effect on your site speed. It's a hot and often misunderstood topic ... Not so long ago I published a short tutorial on this highly debated issue:
The truth is that many professional plugins (and themes) are providing simple and customization options that will allow you to disable (hide) given features on mobile devices. Still, that's a rare "best case scenario" ... and is really annoying to see all those poor mobile test results.
This is why I've created this short tutorial where I will show you how can you improve your mobile speed by disabling individual plugins for the mobile wersion of your Wordpress site.
