A Gzip Experiment

I found an interesting article by Scriptygoddess: Compressing Webpages for Fun and Profit. http://www.scriptygoddess.com/archives/003627.php

...What if I told you that you can third your content easily with no work on your part whatsoever? It sounds like a pitch I might get in a lovely unsolicited email. The secret lies in the fact that every major browser of the past 5 years supports transparently decompressing content on the fly.

The trick is to use some simple PHP code at the top of the page. This code compresses the content using gzip. But before sending the compressed content, it checks the header to make sure that the browser can uncompress it.

I made a copy of my main page that uses this technique. Please try it, and let me know (in the Comments) if you notice any speed difference. If so, I'll make the change to all of my pages. This technique seems to offer the best of both worlds: faster load times and reduced bandwidth. The difference, if any, will probably be most noticeable by dial-up users and those with slow connections.

Here's a site that lets you enter a URL, http://leknor.com/code/gziped.php and it will tell you if the document uses gzip encoded content. You'll find, for example, that Google and Slashdot use it.

Caution......the leknor.com site spawns ad pop-ups and attempts to install malware.

Yup, it's gzipped...Imagine if this thing wasn't! I mean it would be an even tougher download. Thanks for keeping your eye out for this stuff though.
