Publisher description for Ziproxy

Ziproxy program icon

Ziproxy is a honest solution, providing what it claims to: realistic HTTP acceleration. Certain commercial software (I won't mention the names, but you probably know who they are) claim absurd numbers such as "up to 200x acceleration" obviously using unrealistic metrics (such as raw bitmap size divided by compressed size). Funny to know that such software even hide the FACT they use JPEG 2000 for their "extra quality Algorithm" (as if they invented the algorithm themselves). In real world, when compared to Ziproxy, such software offer either lower image quality or lower compression. Everyone is free to do the test themselves. So here we are: debunking the myth that commercial software is necessarily better than free (FOSS) software! Ziproxy 2.7.1 released. Minor fixes this time: * Fixed HTTP/0.9 simple response support (which was broken for aeons and nobody noticed). * Gunzipped data smaller than the compressed was being treated as corruped and data was simply forwarded as is. But that's not necessarily true (a certain website thought it was a good idea to gzip jpegs, for example) and in certain cases processing was not applied because of that. Fixed. * Implemented workaround for Buggy sites which send: Content-Encoding: ISO-8859-1 (violates RFC 2616). Fixes certain pages which appeared as binary garbage in the browser.
