Google has launched a new YouTube video series designed to help explain compression algorithms to Web and mobile development pros. Titled "Compressor Head," the series explains the history of compression and shows developers how they can use it to improve website and app performance.

"The next five billion humans who come online will be doing so from parts of the world where connectivity is costly and slow," said Google developer advocate Colt McAnlis. "With the average Website approaching 2 megabytes in size and the average Android game approaching 125 megabytes, users in these markets will have to make a tough choice between content and cost. Compression algorithms, which address this issue, will become critically important over the next decade."
