It is nice to know that the NSURLConnection class supports gzip out of the box. The NSURLConnection class also does auto-decoding of the compressed data when the compressed content is received. However, by default even though the NSURLConnection class is handling this, it does not automatically add the required header to the HTTP request.

The XIB file format is introduced in the Interface Builder 3 on Leopard. It replaces the previous file format NIB, short for NeXT Interface Builder. The Interface Builder application is a GUI for building and assembling user-interface objects, images and references to sounds for your Mac application. It allows you to drag and drop user-interface objects such as buttons, tableviews onto a window and layout the objects visually. These objects are archived and saved as a XIB file. When an application launches, these XIB files are loaded and un-archived. The user-interface objects are then made available to the application.
