Gzip (GNU zip) is a file compression and decompression tool used to reduce the size of files. It is a software application that uses a compression algorithm to compress files, which can then be decompressed to their original form. Gzip is commonly used to compress files for faster transfer over networks and to reduce the amount of disk space required to store files. The gzip format is widely supported on many platforms, and is often used for compressing files on web servers to improve website performance.
