    http://pi-xel.io use completely different techniques for image compression. Most of the image optimizers just reduce the quality factor for jpeg encoder (usually downgrading from 90+ to 70 result in almost identical images) but pi-xel.io also apply some kind of filters to make the image smoother and more compressible.
