What is Brotli?
Brotli is a compression algorithm developed by Google that was released in 2015. Compression is the process of reducing the size of data by removing redundant or repeated information, making it easier and faster to transmit and store. Brotli was designed to be better at compression than other commonly used algorithms, such as gzip and deflate.
Brotli achieves this better compression rate by using a more advanced data compression algorithm that analyzes the data in a more efficient way, resulting in a smaller file size. This is particularly useful for websites that contain a lot of large files, such as images and videos, as it can greatly improve the website's performance by reducing load times.

Eventually, every modern website should use Brotli. Make sure your website is using it too!
