Since years, I use compressed delivery for faster page load.

All my pages are gun zip compressed on the server,
so they can be delivered immedeately.

But a small 3% minority can not use compressed delivery.
All browsers can, but some intranet software strip it out.

Let's make pressure against the vendors of this bad software
manipulatiing away the advantage of gz delivered content.

Let's make action like in the year 2000,
there was the standard compatibl browser initiative,
redirecting Netscape 4, MSIE 3 to a page
"Your browser is not compatible"

The problem is most times in big offices using
some scrap software to access and filter the internet.
