Compressing downloads increases the CPU load on the server, but reduces the size of the downloads if they compress well, like 100K web pages, but rarely binary files. If the web site is static pages, you can pre-compress the pages so the overhead is a one-off and then all the clients see the same compressed file instead of them all compressing it themselves. Sorry, not looked the HTTP server for a long time, but ZLIB is in the FTP server and should not be hard to migrate. I used Arno's threads so the server does not get blocked while compressing a file.
