ShortPixel Adaptive Images vs. Cloudflare Polish & Mirage services

Nobody likes waiting, especially website visitors on a slow-loading website. People shouldn’t be forced to suffer when trying to find information or make purchases. If your customers don’t get what they want when they want it, they’ll be more likely to bounce than convert (a.k.a. leave your website without purchasing, reading or doing what you want them to). It’s about time you fix that with a WordPress image optimization plugin.

Introducing ShortPixel Adaptive Images (or SPAI for short), while on the other side we have Cloudflare Polish and Mirage services. Please note that Cloudflare has several other image services, like Cloudflare Images and Cloudflare Image Resizing. These are oriented towards developers, as they require manual development. 
What sets those two apart?
