    gzip inflation of xml not working on chrome and safari


      My app downloads a number of xml files previously compressed using gzip, and staged in the amazon cloud (S3)

      with Content-Encoding=gzip and Content-type=application/octet-stream


      I obtain them using mx.rpc.http:HTTPService, with resultFormat="e4x"


      This has worked fine for me on Firefox, IE and Opera, but works neither on Chrome (21) nor safari, nor has it for a while.

      It is my understanding that the browser is expected to inflate the incoming file automatically, and forward the

      decompressed result to flash (4). Why is this not being done here? Do they expect a different content type?

      Are there any known browser settings that can remedy this?


      Thanks in advance for your attention.
