Best Javascript compressor to use

I recently had a relatively large javascript (14KB) that I want to compress down. There are a lot of online JS compressors out there unfortunately not all of them actually work. After testing around a dozen of them I found the best two are JavaScript Utility and Javascript Compressor. JavaScript Utility was able to compress down my code to 5.0KB while Javascript Compressor compressed down to 6.3KB.

While both are good I would recommend using Javascript Utility, not only because it achieved a better compression ratio, but it also has a large number of other JS utilities that are worth using (especially JSLint). The only problem I found is I was only able to get the UTF-8 encoding option to actually run.
