Details

HTTP compression should be optional. The performance of the server and client are hit by the compression algorithm.

With very fast networks (a LAN for example), the speed of the application is CPU-bound when using compression.

With slow networks (dialups or ISDN), the speed of the application is Net Bandwith-bound without compression.

So, compression should be used only with slow networks, not with fast ones.

This bug has been fixed. The option is enabled by default, as we think is the most useful setting in most cases.

Closing.

As a side note, in our tests I've found that uncompressed data "feels" slower even in the LAN.
