Basically it allows output to be compressed with gzip encoding as it's sent
to the browser. I had a webpage that was part of an admin section of a
website, it was 153K in size and getting a lot of hits. The result now is
the page gets compressed to 17K and therefore uses less bandwidth/faster to
download, this all happens transparently from the visitors point of view.
