ESC is an ECMAScript pre-processor written in JScript, enabling an unlimited number of external scripts to be compressed/crunched into supertight, bandwidth-optimized packages. Featuring several compression-techniques such as comment removal, whitespace stripping, newline stripping and variable substitution ESC can reduce the overall size of your code with up to ~45%. Single, multiple scripts and even directories with scripts can be merged together at the compression level you decide.
ESC is free software, distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
Very nice browser independent approach.
