Choose a version:
36% The original file has 59291 bytes (57.9k) and is available from the project website.
There you can find the official minified version, too, which brings down the size to 21235 bytes (20.7k, 36%).

After GZIP compression these minified files vary in size:

  10963 bytes (10.7k)

perma-link to the smallest file on my server:
http://minime.stephan-brumme.com/files/jquery/jquery-1.1.2.pack.js

You will automatically get the smallest jQuery 1.1.2 file, ETag caching is available and
if your browser doesn't support GZIP decompression then the uncompressed version will be sent.

Currently best Zopfli settings

You can use my super-compressed files for whatever purpose you like as long as you respect the library's original license agreement.
There are no restrictions from my side - but please avoid hot-linking if you run a high-traffic website.

These command-line settings yielded the best compression ratio so far (Linux version of zopfli-krzymod):
zopfli --i100000 --mb8 --mls32 --bsr12 --lazy --ohh

(found January 4, 2016)
Description Value Parameter
iterations 100000  --i100000
maximum blocks 8  --mb8
maximum length score 32  --mls32
block splitting recursion 12  --bsr12
lazy matching in LZ77 yes  --lazy
optimized Huffman headers yes  --ohh
initial random W for iterations 1  --rw1
initial random Z for iterations 2  --rz2

Even Smaller Files Thanks To Defluff

Zopfli's output can be further optimized by the defluff tool.
In this particular case, defluff saves 1 more byte (10498 bytes).

Verify file integrity

After decompression, my uncompressed files are identical to the original ones:

Heatmaps

This Zopfli heatmap visualizes how compression changes when modifying the --bsr and --mls parameter.
Cell's contents is the best filesize achieved (in bytes, hover with mouse over cells to see number of iterations).

Good parameters are green, bad are red. The best and worst are bold as well.
The brightness of the blue background color indicates how many iterations were processed:
10,000 or 100,000.

Due to the Monte Carlo design of my search algorithm, not all parameters have reached the same number of iterations yet:
Iterations Min. Bytes Reduction Coverage
100 10505 bytes 100%
1,000 10501 bytes -4 bytes 100%
10,000 10500 bytes -1 byte 100%
100,000 10499 bytes -1 byte 1.74%
1,000,000
10,000,000

KZIP has far less options available for tuning/optimization. I only played around with the number of blocks (parameter -n):
Blocks Min. Bytes Compared To Best Zopfli Compared To Best KZIP
10527 bytes +28 bytes (+0.27%)
10710 bytes +211 bytes (+2.01%) +183 bytes
10527 bytes +28 bytes (+0.27%)
10529 bytes +30 bytes (+0.29%) +2 bytes
10543 bytes +44 bytes (+0.42%) +16 bytes
10542 bytes +43 bytes (+0.41%) +15 bytes
10571 bytes +72 bytes (+0.69%) +44 bytes
10609 bytes +110 bytes (+1.05%) +82 bytes
10645 bytes +146 bytes (+1.39%) +118 bytes

Non-DEFLATE Algorithms

Archivers based on completely different compression algorithms often produce superior results.
Unfortunately, browsers only support gzip compression at the moment.

Detailled Analysis

I wrote a DEFLATE decoder in Javascript. Click the button below to start a client-side analysis of the smallest gzipped files (may take a second):


Notes: pigz is a fast open source multi-threaded implementation of gzip written by one of the original authors of gzip.
However, when using compression level 11, pigz actually switches to the slower Zopfli algorithm and isn't multi-threaded anymore.
KrzyMOD's extensions to Zopfli offer the highest level of configuration and is therefore used for my brute-force search.
Ken Silverman wrote the closed-source KZIP compression program and Jonathon Fowler ported it to Linux.
Defluff was created by Joachim Henke; DeflOpt is a tool by Ben Jos Walbeehm.
