Modern Browsers Will Display Gziped File Directly

Modern Browsers Will Display Gziped File Directly

Discovered that in latest version of all major browsers, they will display a gzip compressed page directly (instead of asking you to download). For example, check: perl_Ilya_Regularly_Expresses_2000.html.gz.

The browsers with this feature includes: IE9, Firefox 4, Google Chrome 11, Opera 11.1. The only browser that doesn't is Safari (v5.0.5 on Windows.)

Btw, the that gziped article is mentioned in these articles: Text Processing: Emacs Lisp vs PerlPerl Books Survey 2002.
