Brotli: A new compression algorithm for faster Internet

Brotli: A new compression algorithm for faster Internet

Brotli is a new open source compression algorithm designed to enable an Internet that's faster for users.

Modern web pages can often be made up of dozens of megabytes of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and that's before accounting for images, videos, or other large file content, which all makes for hefty downloads. Such loads are why pages are transferred in compressed formats; they significantly reduce the time required between a website visitor requesting a web page and that page appearing fully loaded on the screen and ready for use.
