  • TurboBench

    Compression Benchmark

  • Project mention: Zstd Content-Encoding planned to ship with Chrome 123 | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-02-07

    I'm still unconvinced about this addition. And I don't even dislike Zstandard.

    The main motivation seems to be that while Zstandard is worse than Brotli at the highest level, it's substantially faster than Brotli when data has to be compressed on the fly with a limited computation budget. That might be true, but I'm yet to see any concrete or even anecdotal evidence even in the issue tracker [1] while there exist some benchmarks where both Zstandard and Brotli are fast enough for the web usage even at lower levels [2].

    According to their FAQ [3] Meta and Akamai have successfully used Zstandard in their internal network, but my gut feeling is that they never actually tried to optimize Brotli instead. In fact, Meta employs the main author of Zstandard so it would have been easier to tune Zstandard instead of Brotli. While Brotli has some fundamental difference from Zstandard (in particular Brotli doesn't use arithmetic-equivalent coding), no one has concretely demonstrated that difference would prevent Brotli from being fast enough for dynamic contents in my opinion.

  • uzlib

    Radically unbloated DEFLATE/zlib/gzip compression/decompression library. Can decompress any gzip/zlib data, and offers simplified compressor which produces gzip-compatible output, while requiring much less resources (and providing less compression ratio of course).

  • tinf

    Tiny inflate library (inflate, gzip, zlib)

  • genozip

    A modern compressor for genomic files (FASTQ, SAM/BAM/CRAM, VCF, FASTA, GFF/GTF/GVF, 23andMe...), up to 5x better than gzip and faster too

  • zlib

    Compression and decompression in the gzip and zlib formats (by haskell)

  • Stm32-FatFs-Gzip

    This project offers a simplified compressor that produces Gzip-compatible output with small resources for microcontrollers and edge computers. He uses the very basic LZ77 compression algorithm and static Deflate Huffman tree encoding to compress / decompress data into Gzip files.

  • nflate

    Naive implementation of DEFLATE in C for decompressing gzip files (RFC 1951, RFC 1952).

  • jdeflate

    DEFLATE compressor/decompressor implementation

  • Project mention: ZLib VS jdeflate - a user suggested alternative | libhunt.com/r/zlib | 2023-11-25
