What is Minification (from Minifier) ?
Minification is the process of removing all unnecessary characters from the source codes without changing their functionality or behaviour. So, the size of your code will be reduced without changing the result of the code.
Minification can remove few things from source code such as spaces and newlines. Or even can change the structure of the code while maintaining the same result (this example is quite extreme, but possible. The process can be quite the same as in the compiler).
The drawback of minification of course the code can be harder to read, thats why minify can be called uglify.
