Brotli vs gzip for HTTP compression


#1

Hey fellow web devs out there. These days, what are you using for most of your HTTP compression, gzip or brotli? I’ve seen better performance overall with brotli, but page speed tools still like to recommend gzip so curious what others are using.

I suppose it partially comes down to the situation too, so in this case let’s say a WordPress site for example that is PHP-based but doesn’t get changed too often or have much dynamic content. I know brotli is superior on static content but not too much of the web development work out there is static obviously :slight_smile:

Curious what you guys are using.

I tend to use just G Zip on all my sites. I,ve not really done any testing to see which is best but after your question i might take a look and test?
