Mizer Gets Wiser

Antimony Software has released Mizer 1.5.3, an update to its drag & drop utility for squeezing bytes out of bloated HTML files. (See "HTML Crunchers Fuel Compression Obsession" in TidBITS 453.) Mizer accomplishes this reduction by eliminating HTML comments, line breaks, and other characters ignored by Web browsers. Version 1.5 introduces several changes to the program, including the display of more information during file processing, an improved parsing engine (which also intelligently trims JavaScript code), and the ability to optimize JPEG images in addition to HTML files. Mizer also implements support for current Apple technologies such as the Appearance Manager and Navigation Services; because of this, Mizer now requires a PowerPC-based system running at least System 7.5.5 with the Appearance Manager installed. The update is free to registered users (but note that you will need to download and apply several incremental updates to get the most recent version, 1.5.3.). Otherwise, Mizer can be purchased online for $70.
