We are comparing different hosting solutions at my job. (I vouched for Netlify!)
Here is the exact same site hosted on 3 different platforms:
total transfer size: 53.9 KiB
total transfer size: 59.1 KiB
total transfer size: 62.7 KiB
One thing I don’t fully understand is why the total transfer size is different from one host to the other.
It makes sense for things like Time To First Byte to differ, but transfer size?
The only thing I can think of is the compression algorithm.
Gatsby Cloud seems to use gzip, so that could explain why it’s the biggest.
But both Netlify and Firebase use Brotli.
Can someone enlighten me?
