    This topic can be confusing, so let me try to clarify.
    I'm not saying that Squarespace performance cannot be improved. Performance can always be improved, regardless of the platform, but in reply to the original question, I'm simply explaining that there is nothing that you or I - or any third party specialist - can do to reduce "unused" or render-blocking JavaScript on Squarespace.
    Only Squarespace's Web Performance team can improve the backend code. They've already made significant progress to ensure Squarespace sites compete well and there is more to follow. Where possible, they have removed render-blocking Javascript and are lazy-loading images across websites.
    If you're using version  7.0 (or planning to use it) then it's worth bearing in mind that not all of the improvements being made will benefit version 7.0 sites. If you are looking for higher performance, version 7.1 is likely to show better CWVs over time in comparison.
