I'm trying to improve the performance of my web pages and I've been reading about something called gzip?
I am working on a Windows machine and Dreamweaver. Is the idea that Once I finish my JS files, I can compress them with GZip *(presumably this will make them unreadable but very small), and then the browser automatically detects a GZip file and decompresses it?
Is this correct? Does it actually speed things up, or does the decompression time cancel out the size savings?
