I personally don't care, as my blog loads fast as it is so.
Well wait until you get a Digg/StumbleUpon effect out of no where.. than you'll regret what you said

My opinion is .htaccess caching technique is much effective than the wp-cache.

All those addons (Digg, Adsense, Google Analytics, etc.) people use slow down your blog rendering too if the coding isn't optimized to load late in the page rendering and if the said service is down/slow.

The other week when Google services were down, it was torture trying to surf.

Alot of blogs I surf are slow due to all the addons people use. If a blog stalls loading, just look at the status bar at the bottom of your browser window, it shows what it's waiting for. Lately it's been Digg.

Huge images and flash files are another cause of slow sites.

Server load will affect your blog load time too, depending on how many sites the web host has on the server.

Addon overload is far too common these days. Some of the sidebars out there are simply verging on ridiculous. Quite often I'm finished reading the article before the sidebar is finished loading. Especially if there is a lot of linking to 3rd party sites and flash ads.

WP-Cache is likely more useful to a high traffic blog. Those with low or moderate traffic can likely get by without it.

Most browsers can only load 2-4 images simultaneously from any single domain. By splitting images sources between your main domain and another domain (keeping theme images on a sub-domain, for instance, and content images on the main domain) we can increase the load speed of the site dramatically by allowing an additional 2-4 images to be loaded at the same time.

Another thing I have noticed is Plugin Crazy. (= more stuff the blogging software has to process before rendering the whole page)

One site I was asked to look at because it wasn't working properly had tonnes plugins active! Some doing the same thing. If you want to try out different SEO plugins for example, deactivate the one you are using first.
a) so you can see what each one does
b) so they don't conflict with each other

I don't have an experienced however why you don't reduce your unneeded plugin? More plugin is more heavy server.

here is another plugin that helps clean up the blog - WP-Optimize

I use 1blogcacher.. the speed improvements are in milliseconds, so you won't notice any difference.. but it does a good job reducing your bandwidth usage by not querying to the database.

Another thing to watch for is stat tracking plugins because they can slow your site to a crawl. This holds especially true if your stat plugins continually scans the db for the most up to date stats as well as creating it's own historical information about your blogs traffic.

I fell into this trap myself by using a popular wordpress stat plugin and it was slowing rendering time down to a crawl. Once I disabled it my blog was once again speedy to respond.

I personally will suggest to not worry about site loading time much. Matt Cutts have answered a question about time loading time. He said that, site loading time do not count in site ranking in SERPs, unless a site do not load at all, or the sire takes so long to load that browser gives an error.

However, if traffic on your site is heavy, then may be using this plugin is a good idea. That will make sure that your site performs ok in heavy traffic.

I think this thread has changed from increasing blog speed to increasing spammer speed.

If you want to increase speed, I suggest you apply gzip compression, remove unused css codes, then focus on optimizing your images and apply css sprite technique. I was able to reduce image size in my site by half.

To increase speed,I recommend you apply compress technology and optimize your website,certainly WP-Cache can be used to increase speed,but it will only work if your server supports one of various caching engines server-side, otherwise it won't do anything.
