    It appears Safari does not support GZip compressed HTTP/HTML pages.

    This is helpful for websites, as they can typically send gzip compressed html and it will get decoded on the fly.

    In fact, for those with slow connections, it may be faster than to decompress it then to receive the uncompressed html over your connection.

    Anyhow -- send in your requests. :) I did.

    I haven't heard if gzip support made it into Panther's Safari. Anyone know?

    Do you have an example of a site that uses it?


    Update:

    Found some .html.gz files on Google and Safari 1.1 (v90) was able to open all of them.
