HttpCompression = on
I noticed that just the HTML on my home page was over 100K, so I turned HttpCompression on with the Blowery HttpCompression Module:
<section name="httpCompressionModule" type="blowery.Web.HttpModules.HttpCompressionModuleSectionHandler, HttpCompressionModule"/>
<httpCompressionModule preferredAlgorithm="gzip" compressionLevel="high"/>
However, there's a series of majorly icky bugs in most versions of IE and a few of them are JUST RIDICULOUS. It's bitten me before, so as much as I support companies like XCompress (XCache) and HttpZip and the whole concept of HttpCompression, I'm a little wary. Let me know if you have a problem. Of course, if you can't read this, you have a problem. :)

"Modern browsers built after 1996 to the HTTP 1.1 specification can handle compressed content flawlessly (Internet Explorer and Netscape 5 and higher, Mozilla, Opera, etc.)."
That's just not true. Thoughts?

Thanks for trying out the compression module. If you have any problems with it, give me a shout.
