Subject [users@httpd] regarding content compression
Date Mon, 01 Dec 2008 11:55:38 GMT

I am about to set up compression. One thing puzzles me a bit. Nowadays 
most browsers know how to handle compressed data. So, it seems to me 
that storing that data compressed on disk and send it via sendfile 
would be better than having mod_deflate compress it each time anew. The 
few clients that don't know how to handle it can then be served using 
the INFLATE filter.

Is that a sound approach?
