Disable Developer Modules

A number of modules have no functionality other than to provide an Administation UI. Examples are Views UI, Panels UI, ImageCache UI, Feeds UI and several others. On production servers, once you are done with them, you probably do not need keep them enabled. By just disabling these modules you can save Drupal resources. Do not unintall these modules! Just keep them disabled in the Drupal modules list.

Remember, this tweak only makes sense once you are done building your site!

A quick and easy way to disable such modules is by using the Administration Menu module. This module has a button to insta-disable the unnecessary UI modules.
