FileOptimizer is an advanced, all-in-one file optimizer/compression tool featuring a lossless (no quality loss) file size reduction. It supports more than 400 file types, and has more than 90 third-party file compression plugins built-in, allowing you to get the best possible results.
The program is suitable for home users that need to speed up file transfers no matter if they are in email attachments, P2P or shared upload servers. It's also suitable for webmasters/web developers that need to increase the page load speed and reduce content weight.
The program is very easy to use, just drag and drop the files you want to optimize, right click with the mouse to open the contextual menu, and then click on Optimize. This will process all supported files added, and overwrite them with the optimized version.
By default, FileOptimizer will remove additional metadata, and other unneeded information, but will keep original files in your recycle bin just in case you want to further modify the originals.

- Speededup duplicates check when adding items to the grid, which is now exponentially faster (20 times faster for 10,000 files).
- Added ImageMagick to the GIF toolchain.
- Added ClearWhenComplete=false INI setting to autoclear file list when optimization completes (Lanette Fidrych).
- Added TARGA (TGA ICB, VDA, and VST) toolchain, and TGA detection by contents.

- Reenabled Embarcadero's Luna, Metropolis and Windows 10 themes removed in FileOptimizer 9.10, because they work fine again with Windows 10 Anniversary and later. Made Windows theme default, because it is stabler and faster.
- Fixed themes hidding main user interface when executed via command-line.
- Formatted numbers, sizes and times according to locale settings.
- Fixed that double-clicking on fixed columns could open selected file.
- When multiple instances are allowed, FO will not warn anymore about Optimization still running, nor kill plugin processes.

- Rewritten update check to use POST.
- Better 7z SFX detection.
- Made INI processing safer.
- Expanded contextual menu with more new commands.
- Reenabled ECT on APNG files (fhanau).
- Reduced a bit the quality loss allowed when lossy compression is enabled to improve ratio.
- Disabled ECT in MP3 toolchain, because it is not compiled with that module (fhanau).
