Some weeks ago I wrote how to minify and compress the WebResource.axd handler. In the comments of that post someone asked how to do the same with ScriptResource.axd. I thought about it and realized it could be done much smarter. If you take a look at the HTML source at the CodePlex Issue Tracker page, you’ll see it references 13 WebResource.axd and ScriptResource.axd. That’s 13 different web requests on each page load. The ScriptResource.axd is using HTTP compression but WebResource.axd does not. None of them minifies the scripts.
