gZip Compression

What is gZip Compression?

Gzip compression is a technique for minimizing bandwidth in communication through compression. Gzip compression can improve network performance at the expense of greater CPU usage.

Impact on Today

Applications that use gzip compression can load faster for some end users, particularly those on lower bandwidth connections.
