Re: Gzip issue with Safari

I discover the problem reported by mcofko yesterday when I see the nginx configuration generated by the W3 Total Cache extension for WordPress :

if ($http_accept_encoding ~ gzip) {
set $w3tc_enc .gzip;
if (-f $request_filename$w3tc_enc) {
rewrite (.*) $1$w3tc_enc break;

It doesn’t use the gzip_static feature of nginx “because gz is not compatible with some versions of safari.” https://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-w3-total-cache-change-gzip-extension-to-gz

This bug of Safari seems to be well known since 2009 ! :
- https://www.webveteran.com/blog/web-coding/coldfusion/fix-for-safari-and-gzip-compressed-javascripts/
- http://stackoverflow.com/questions/32169082/safari-cannot-decode-raw-data-when-using-gzip
- https://blog.jcoglan.com/2007/05/02/compress-javascript-and-css-without-touching-your-application-code/

But somebody noticed the bug is resolved now :

“The test page blog.kosny.com/testpages/safari-gz indicates that the warning "Be careful naming and test in Safari. Because safari won't handle css.gz or js.gz" is out of date. In Safari 7 on Mavericks, and in Safari on iOS 7, both css.gz and js.gz work. I don't know when this change occurred, I'm only testing with the devices I have.”

So now I don’t know if I must handle this bug or if I can consider this out-of-date.
