Today many people work and collaborate through the Internet and they often need share projects and documents; nowadays, this kind of stuff is a huge amount of bytes to transfer through the net and, even if broadband networks are spreading quickly, transferring a big file may be a problem and it could represent a loss of productivity. Compression programs allow to reduce the size of a file, as much as it is possible, and work becomes faster and easier.
