Let’s make it simple. A computer is an extremely fast and intelligent machine. It can easily read and understand even the most complex programs in a matter of seconds.
It absolutely doesn’t matter how the program is written, whether there are spaces or not and what names are given to the defined variables.
We usually write programs in a way such that it can be easily read and understood by humans. The programs are arranged using suitable spaces and lines. We often add comments for better understanding. However, the main purpose of a programming code is to be understood by the computer and as earlier said a computer could read any programming code easily no matter how they are written or arranged. It just needs to be free from any syntax errors.
The same code looks something like this after minifying it.
It might seem really confusing and hard to understand on the other hand you can easily read the same code in the previous image. This is because all the line spacing and spaces between characters and brackets have been deleted. However, both the codes are treated in the exact same way by a computer system. A computer can easily read both the code without any difficulty.
There is nothing more annoying than slow loading of the website. I mean nobody really likes to visit or use a website which is very slow to load just because of its large size. A user will start hating your website no matter how useful its contents are and how well the site is designed.
