Unfortunately, I've noticed it only after about half an hour, so for half an hour the site looked like a total mess. I have to figure out what's the cause of it and maybe I'd have to enable Falcon's features one by one, but I don't have time for that right now. So, for the being, it's going to be disabled because even though it gave a marginal increase in speed, it also rendered the site unusable.

This plugin makes my site faster. But it needs still a little development. I receive an error message on the backend login page.
