During some random surfing and i stumbled on an article about brotli i thought of giving it a try myself, see if it would render any success for emtay.
For those who don't know what brotli is, it is a compression algorithm comparable to gzip but much more efficient for text-based files.
The whole operation of enabling brotli in nginx only took about 5 minutes but the results are astonishing. The increase of performance between the two runs of lighthouse speak for themselves
Of course brotli is mainly effective with plain text. So don't generally enable it but use these settings in the sites-enabled section for optimal effect
