What does the 'Accept-Encoding' checkbox do ?



  • Hi, i've noticed that on different site, depending on if this checkbox is checked or not the website will act differently, but when i look up at the headers sent, nothing change, that's what leads to my question. Thanks !
    ex with 'accept-encoding' checked:
