w3 total cache vs wp super cache, i recommend w3 total cache, because of these following reasons:
1. w3 total cache is very easy to install, deactivate, and delete. Just click the usual deactivate, and delete links and it will be deleted.
There are times when you want to deactivate or deleting your plugins, because of many reasons. For me, i usually do this when something goes wrong with my blog, i want to know whether some plugins cause some errors.
Also as i reckon from wordpress.org support forum while upgrading to newer version, some people got problems after upgradingdue to troublemaker plugins.
wp super cache is quite complicated to deactivate, it has a special way to deactivate. Of course w3 total cache saves time.
2. I have noticed when i use wp super cache, made some changes in my sites, and i check the changes in front-end, i didn’t see the changes, it needs a while until other people can see the changes.
When i was logged in as an admin, i can see the changes i have made. weird. I have noticed other people have this problem too.
3. w3 total cache has more features than wp super cache plugins, like minify alls scripts you have, and caching options.
These 3 reasons i definitely want to use to recommend w3 total cache for you to try. ( with your own risk.)
