Deflate Compression Online

Compress files using Deflate

Early in the 1990s, the lossless data compression technology known as Deflate was created. Most applications that require sending data over the Internet utilize it, including browsers, web servers, and other programs. Moreover, the GZIP and ZLIB formats use Deflate algorithm. The PNG image format also uses the algorithm.

The Deflate algorithm is a combination of the LZ77 algorithm and Huffman coding. Deflate works by replacing repeated occurrences of data with references to a single copy of that data.

Compression algorithms are useful because they reduce the amount of data that needs to be transferred or stored, thus saving space and time.

Deflate is one compression algorithm, but there are many more available on Beautify Code. You can find a list of available compression algorithms in the menu.
