Tests (sorted by time)

All tested programs

Here are the results of the latest tests sorted by compression, decompression and total time. Time is measured in seconds. The lower value (highlighted in table) is the best. You can also view results in a graph (15kB).

First follows chart with total time, this time is calculated as 2x Decompression_time + Compression_time. This expression should best fit to the user's requirements to compression program, because decompression speed is more important than compression time.
