"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."

Netscape in Linux works very well, and the KDE Konqueror browser supports compression too. ..." Mod_gzip is amazing. You'll find large 100K HTML pages come down the wire as 12K compressed files.
