WP Super Cache or WP Total Cache

Any opinions on which cache for Wordpress is best? I've used both WP Super Cache and WP Total Cache. I tend towards WP Total Cache because it uses minify to compress HTML and CSS files, but I note that it has far fewer downloads than Super Cache (580k vs 2.3 million).

I use W3TC and I love it. I did find a bug with LiteSpeed and W3TC, though. Advanced page caching doesn't work and URL Rewrites doesn't work. URL Rewrites is important to me because I use CloudFlare and CF won't notice a static file if it ends in php.js or php.css.

I found that W3TC also doesn't recognize mod_deflate or eAcellerator in modern versions of PHP on cPanel-based servers. You get the same benefit if you also enable cPanel's "Optimize Website" function to compress the text/html mime types (cPanel has the defaults built in).

 

I do like its use of minify to compress JS, CSS and HTML files. I applied both cPanel's "Optimize Website" and W3TC on a site that didn't have either enabled yesterday, and the Google page speed score rose from 65 to 73, about an 8% improvement. My best page speed on a Wordpress site is on a theme I adapted heavily, with a 93/100 score.
