Optimize Scripts & Styles optimizes your site’s JavaScript and CSS files by combining, minifying and caching them. This will help your site’s overall performance and user experience by reducing the number of files served up and the overall size of these files.

For developers, this allows you to maintain uncompressed versions for development themes or plugins, while compressing them for a production environment.

For you SEO buffs, it cleans up the number of scripts that get included and downloaded to your site visitors, helping your overall PageSpeed score.

Header and footer script locations are maintained as well as any localized data used for the scripts and the minified files are stored in the /cache folder, making it friendly for plugins like WP Super Cache. Media attributes are also maintained for print stylesheets.
