Technology Overview
All latest web browsers support GZIP compression, i.e. they are able to receive HTML, css or other content compressed in GZIP format instead of downloading them in their full-size, clear-text format. This is critical performance requirement since only a small fraction of web content today is already pre-compressed.

WEBcompress technology includes:

Inline HTTP interception and text compression in GZIP format (HTML, JS, CSV, CSS, text).
Image downsizing (JPG, GIF and PNG) with configurable quality degradation impact: the administrator can select the desired trade-off between image quality preservation and compression ratio.
Content filtering (for example advertising, flash animations, video) which consumes bandwidth and impacts the user’s experience.
Per-user optimization policies: the network operator can assign web optimization profiles per remote user.
TCP acceleration helps in improving HTTP transfer rates.
