Minification Tooling

Overview: Minification is the process of combining multiple css or js files, removing whitespaces and comments to improve web site performance.


Tools:
YUI Compressor(Yahoo)
Web Essentials(Microsoft)
Mavention(Microsoft)
Grunt
jscompress.com/
Google Code Compress (Google)


I'd always go for 1 of the Microsoft tools: Web Essentials or Mavention as the plug into Visual Studio, as a SharePoint guy this would be my preferred option.  Both the MS tools appear to use the same engine as the compression appears identical, work out to roughly 60% on both CSS and JS compression.
