About

The gzipcheck tool was originally written for an intranet project. It has been made available to others for free via the web because it is a helpful tool for developers.

Gzipcheck.com was launched on February 11, 2012. Server and code hardening over the next two days was intensive, and we elected to tighten cURL transports for security. Coincidentally, as it were, as others were realizing that cURL can be abused by bogus POP3 redirects.
