Question Apache: mod_gzip or mod_deflate, or both?

Hi everyone,

I have Apache 2 setup on Linux, and I'm trying to optimize it.

I have looked at mod_gzip and mod_deflate. Are these more-or-less the same kind of HTTP compression tools?

Which would people recommend using?

mod_gzip looks like it has not been updated since 2002, so I thiking mod_deflate would be best (that is if these 2 tools do the same thing)

any help is much appreciated
