gzip is a file format and a software application used for file compression and decompression. The program was created by Jean-loup Gailly and Mark Adler as a free software replacement for the compress program used in early Unix systems, and intended for use by GNU.

GZip is a form of data compression. it takes a chunk of data and makes it smaller. The original data can be restored by un-zipping the compressed file.

It is relevant to web apps and web sites because the HTTP protocol includes the ability to gzip data that is being sent.

This means that when it is in use, your bandwidth costs for serving the site will be lower because people visiting the site will be downloading smaller files.

Gzip usually have a better compression ratio than deflate making it ideal when size is a major factor. Gzip also allows you to pre-compress the files, thus saving a little bit of time and processing load on the server. These compressed files can then be cached for even faster downloads.
