Head Cleaner for ClassicPress

Removing certain tags from the ClassicPress head section is a great way to enhance site performance. Why load assets for emoji if your site doesn't even use emoji? The Head Cleaner plugin will cause your site to make fewer external requests, request fewer internal resources, and consume less bandwidth overall – which leads to faster pages and happier visitors.
