Mod_gzip is amazing. You'll find large 100K HTML pages come down the wire as 12K compressed files. Your users will be very impressed by the new speed of your site. From my viewing of several log files, it looks like MSIE is fairly hit and miss as to whether it will compress data or not. Netscape in Linux works very well, and the KDE Konqueror browser supports compression too. ...

"Mod_gzip, at http://www.remotecommunications.com/apache/mod_gzip/ is a module for Apache that allows you to compress content from an Apache web server on-the-fly. It uses the same compression as gzip and no plugins or extra software is needed by your browser to take advantage of this product. Reduction in size of up to 90% or more is possible."
