36 of the top 50 web sites in the world (top 50 according to alexa.com) use HTTP compression to improve the performance of their web sites - so what is holding you back?
These very high usage figures were a surprise even to us - but the message is clear - if HTTP compression scales to meet the business needs of the most popular web sites on the
planet then it certainly can have an impact on your internet/intranet web site too.
The figures break down as follows:
- Top 5: 100%
- Top 10: 80%
- Top 20: 75%
- Top 30: 73%
- Top 40: 72.5%
- Top 50: 72%
We believe that IISxpress is the best compression solution for IIS 5, 5.1, 6.0 and now 7.0. The good news is that you can use it non-commercially for FREE,
otherwise you can evaluate it for 21 days with no obligation to buy.
