Jetpack isn’t bloatware

Sam Hotchkiss, developer on the Jetpack team, gives us test results that indicate, if not prove, that he infamous plugin for WordPress is in fact not adding bloat to your install. His conclusion:

At the end of the day, it’s very easy to have a negative reaction to Jetpack because of its size and scope, but, thankfully, those fears don’t tend to be realized in the real world.

Details and test results here.

While we’re on the topic, be sure to check out Jetpack’s new site management feature. Interesting, to say the least.
