HTTP Compression (First Phase) Implemented in Mozilla!

Thursday September 17th, 1998 has just gone up with news that Mozilla now has a limited form of HTTP compression! In this first phase of the implementation, the browser sends an "Accept-encoding: gzip" header to the server. If the correct Apache server module is installed, and the access.conf file in the requested document's directory has a line "CompressContent: yes", the server will look for any gzipped versions of the requested file in that directory. Whew!

But that's just the first step. Click here to read about what's to come!

I think the multiple posts come from the fact that when you first submit a post, the page isn't refreshed and it doesn't look like your message got posted at all. So people press the Submit button again and we get double posts.
