This plugin implements gzip output compression to speed up load times.
The plugin also does a check to see if browsers are incorrectly saying that they do not support GZIP when they actually do. This can speed up load times for a significant portion of users.
For requests with missing or mangled Accept-Encoding headers, inspect the User-Agent to identify browsers that should understand gzip. * Test their ability to decompress gzip. * If successful, send them gzipped content!
