+h5. GZip compression
When files are precompiled, Sprockets also creates a "gzipped": (.gz) version of your assets. Web servers are typically configured to use a moderate compression ratio as a compromise, but since precompilation happens once, Sprockets uses the maximum compression ratio, thus reducing the size of the data transfer to the minimum.
