Researchers at Google created a new compressor called Zopfli. Zopfli trades a massive increase in compression-time (~80x longer) for an improvement between 3% and 8% in the final file size. The resulting file is fully compatible with all DEFLATE decompressors, and decompresses just as quickly as streams that are compressed using lesser compressors.
