Faster web pages thanks to better compression

Today, we released the Zopfli Compression Algorithm, a C library that compresses existing web content 3–8% more densely.

Zopfli is compatible with the normal decompression mechanisms already present in web browsers and  uses a much slower but more exhaustive compression algorithm than, for example, the zlib library. This can result in smaller data sizes and faster web pages.
