Subject canned deflate conf in manual -- time to drop the NS4/vary?
Date Tue, 01 Jun 2010 15:01:00 GMT
IIUC, the vary: user-agent to accomodate Netscape 4 is a pain for
caches because obviously they can only vary on the entire user-agent.

Is it time to move this aspect of the snippet into a separate note or
some historical trivia section, to remove the Vary?


On the same topic, are there still non-academic CSS and JS compression
issues (e.g. XP-era browsers, earlier, later, ???)  Should we instead
account for these in the "complicated/more compression" example, and
is there a way to do so without adding the Vary right back in?
