Compress your HTML files into much smaller zip archives

Compress HTML

This unique software acts similar to WinZip enabling you to compress your HTML files into much smaller zip archives with compression ratio of 90% and more! Your web pages will load quicker and you'll save both your web traffic and disk space. HTML documents will be automatically uncompressed in the user's browser.


HTML2Zip is a powerful HTML compression tool for web developers. This unique compression tool uses the true zip algorithm for compression HTML files. HTML2Zip offers you the following benefits:

1. Maximum possible compression (90% and more), equal to that provided by WinZip, which other compression tools based on JavaScript cannot guarantee.
2. Unzipping the packed HTML in browser also occurs much faster, than with unpackers written in JavaScript.
3. HTML2Zip can process multimegabyte HTML files, which are unattainable for other HTML compression tools.
Current version is 2.1. This version has 480000 bytes restriction for source HTML file size. This restriction will be overcome in the next version of HTML2Zip.
4. Unzipping compressed with HTML2Zip documents in browser is transparent for CSS, Java and other scripts, working on the client side, including the scripts contained are between the <head> and </head> tags.

What's new:

- processing HTML files up to 480000 bytes length
- recurse subdirectories
- you can use wildcards for file names (*.html etc.)
- redirecting non-java browsers to the uncompressed file. You may enable this option, which will make HTML2Zip insert Java Script code into the <head> tag to automatically redirect non-java browsers to the source uncompressed document.

How it works

Compressing HTML files is as easy as a mouse click. You select the file to be compressed, HTML2Zip packs this file to a zip archive with maximum compression ratio and creates a tiny start HTML file (called the destination HTML) with the same name, as a source document. A backup copy of the source file is created. You place both these files in one directory on your web site, local hard disk, your CD or DVD. The browser downloads the tiny start HTML and then automatically loads your zipped source document. The source document is unzipped in the browser and substitutes the start HTML as if the user has downloaded your source HTML file.
You can also remove from the start HTML file the comments and all redundant tags except Title, Description and Keywords, which are necessary for search engines.

System requirements

HTML2Zip works with any version of Microsoft Windows (9x/ME/2000/NT/XP/2003) and needs both Java and JavaScript enabled browser. The following web browsers were tested and passed the compliance test:

Restrictions in the demo version

The demo version has the 8000 bytes restriction for the source HTML file.
