its Javascript. There is an API available for advanced users, but you dont
have to tinker with it if you dont want to. Simply download the code
from github,
and add the javascript to your pages. If you have experience adding something
like google analytics to your pages you know how already.

"All you have to do is stick it into the bottom of your web pages and
call the init() method."


Google Code blog published this yesterday

"We’re starting with more than 15 on-the-fly optimizations that
address various aspects of web performance, including optimizing
caching, minimizing client-server round trips and minimizing payload
size. We’ve seen mod_pagespeed reduce page load times by up to 50% --
in other words, essentially speeding up websites by about 2x, and
sometimes even faster."

You can ask your web host to install this Apache module in their servers.
