If it is not broke, do not fix it

Google offers a service called Page Speed Service. Its purpose is „to automatically speed up loading of your web pages.“ It fails on mine.

When I used the free trial to check whether it would improve the speed of loading my personal homepage at www.hanno-langweg.de, it showed the „optimized“ version of my page to be slower than the original one (which I had hand-coded some time back in 1996 and which has changed only slightly since).

So, I wonder why their service performs any modifications when the test results are so clearly recommending to leave a page as it is.
