Unused CSS

Unused CSS is a feature which remove the CSS which is not being used on the page. It only loads the CSS which is needed. This reduces the CSS being loaded on that page to improve the performance.

Preload Resource

Preload resources can be very helpful in improving Largest Contentful Paint (LCP) if used correctly. Preload resources tell the browser to download critical resources early, such as images, fonts, and CSS, which are needed to render the content in the viewport.

Enable Preload Resources options

Its suggested that the preload to be kept under 7, as adding many preloads can result in slower speed.

DNS-Prefetch is a way to resolve IP address of a website before user clicks the link. It reduces the wait time needed to resolve the IP. This reduces the DNS lookup.

Preconnect establishes a connection with a remote server, before browser actually sends a request, it saves the time it takes for the browser to connect to the remote server.
