Google 推出 Brotli 無損壓縮法

Google 推出了 Brotli 這個無損壓縮法:「Introducing Brotli: a new compression algorithm for the internet」。

Google 推出的 Zopfli 相容於 DEFLATE 的超慢壓縮演算法,但可以多壓榨出 3%~8% 的壓縮率。而 Brotli 則是重新設計,壓縮與解壓縮速度跟 DEFLATE 差不多,但壓縮率比 Zopfli 多了 20%~26%。

This new format allows us to get 20–26% higher compression ratios over Zopfli. In our study ‘Comparison of Brotli, Deflate, Zopfli, LZMA, LZHAM and Bzip2 Compression Algorithms’ we show that Brotli is roughly as fast as zlib’s Deflate implementation.

由於目標是希望讓瀏覽器支援新的壓縮法,Google 把 Brotli 往 RFC 提案,試著變成公開標準:「Brotli Compressed Data Format」。

看了看 commit log,看起來已經開發一陣子了...
