Apache 2.x Gzip Compression For Websites

Websites are more complex due to use of elaborate CSS style-sheets and JavaScript code. Most website content features text and multimedia such as images for slide-shows. Rich media such as photos, audio and videos are already compressed.

The Apache HTTP Server module called mod_deflate can compress content before it is delivered to the client-side. All modern browsers are capable of output compression. Even old browsers such as Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 7, 8 and 9 support output compression.
