Loading Analytics and recaptcha optimization?


I have a problem. I optimize the webpage for faster loading time - images, minify javascript, css, html. But after adding Re-Captcha and Google Analytics the page slows down. 2.5 seconds is not bad -but I would like to make it better.

GT metrix says: "448.5KiB of JavaScript is parsed during initial page load. Defer parsing JavaScript to reduce blocking of page rendering.

Any ideas? Adding custom code to the header?

That test does not take into consideration that most clients have already cached these scripts so they are not downloaded unless not cached. You actually don’t want to defer GA. I would ignore it.
