New Webmaster Tool: GZIP Detector

One of the tools that I end up using a lot of the time is GZIP detection. It's really useful to find out if a given URL uses GZIP. It's easy to do this with Firebug, or with Chromium's Developer tools, but these tools aren't always available. GZIP is important to save bandwidth for content sent over the internet, and detection is the first step to understanding.
