I asked a couple of years ago if Adobe Air supports HTTP compression http://forums.adobe.com/thread/55914
It did not support HTTP compression at the time.
It appears that Adobe Air still does not support HTTP compression on Windows.
As far as we can tell, Adobe Air does in fact support HTTP compression on OSX, although this is not described anywhere in the documentation.
Can someone throw some light on this?
It seems incredible that Adobe Air has not included HTTP compression as a major priority. This means that Air applications hog uncessarily large amounts of bandwidth, and makes them slow.
What is the real story - is HTTP compression supported in OSX but not Windows?
Why is this not a priority for Adobe and why is it not fixed after years?
