WordPress Gzip Compression

Enables gzip-compression if the visitor's browser can handle it. This will speed up your WordPress website drastically and reduces bandwidth usag

Will it speed up my WordPress website?

Yes, absolutely. The gzip handler compresses output before it is sent to the user's browser so the user downloads less data and the browser then processes the compressed data.

What type of compression does it use?

It uses the PHP ob_gzhandler() callback to compress output.
