Gzip (itty-do-da)May 1, 2012 -
Gzip is a GNU zip compression that can be applied to files (according to this Wikipedia article that made me cross-eyed by the second sentence). I’ve seen it lots in various tools for exporting data, but did you know that you can use it to compress JS / CSS on your sites? Simply pop in a block of code into your htaccess file and suddenly your site will see much smaller files being called.
It’s a lovely 2 second implementation that can add up to some serious savings.Tags: htaccess
