Subject Re: [users@httpd] mod_deflate and chunked encoding

I think that's definitely not correct. Browsers do inflate and process
the HTML on the fly, they do not wait for the entire payload.

Chrome seems to have a buffer of 256 bytes, and Firefox has none.

I have used this server for testing this:

and monitored when foo.css was requested on port 3001.

Also, it is clear that mod_deflate does not understand chunked
encoding coming from the app server. It compresses the payload.
