Message:

There doesn't seem to be any additiobnal parameters we can apply to a gzip compression to increase/change the compression level (unlike the zip format) Using "deflate" may provide better results for this (binary) file type, although we would need to do some experimentation. Note that zip and gzip are not the same.

By default browsers only accept gzip or deflate as built in compression algorithms. See the http "Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate" header sent by most browsers.
