I'm running a gtmetrix.com report against my site. I get an F(41) for gzip compression. I don't own the two problem files mentioned for this penality.
I can understand being penalized since I'm calling these files. But if I want to use Mailchimp and the JS file, does that mean I will always be penalized since there isn't a way around these issues.
It's likely my site would go from 85% (B) to an A if I could resolve the above two issues.
I did try moving the mailchimp file to Amazon S3 and enabling gzip. But for some reason, the browser is unable to GET the file with gzip enabled:
(from Google Chrome developer tools)
Any ideas why that happens with gzip?
