Why minify JavaScript ?

Minification is the process of removing all unnecessary characters in order to reduce or compress JavaScript code, in order to decrease the JavaScript file size. It removes the spacing, indentation, newlines, and comments. The minification can also rename local variables, the longer variable names will be shortened. Minification makes more difficult to read JavaScript source code.

Example:

"Pretty" Source code:
		/* Load date from URL */
		function loadFromURL()
		{
			var url = document.getElementById('url').value;
			services.http.get(url, function (data) {
				if (currentEditor && data)
				{
					currentEditor.setValue(data);
				}
				dialogLoadFromURL.dialog( "close" );		
			});
			
		}

Source code after minification process:
function loadFromURL(){var e=document.getElementById("url").value;services.http.get(e,function(e){currentEditor&&e&¤tEditor.setValue(e),dialogLoadFromURL.dialog("close")})}

Developers maintain a pretty version of their source code, and for deployment they use a minification program.
