How can we improve the Windows platform?

Add HTTP accept-encoding gzip header support in WebClient

As of now, it's not possible to set the accept-encoding header : it would be so usefull to be able to set gzip compression to save bandwidth especially on 3G !

    Thank you for the suggestion and commentary. While we have not fully implemented this capability in the 8.0 release, the team tells me that it is possible to set this for GETs in this release. That being said, please know that this is also definitely on the consideration list for future Windows Phone releases.

    Keep those suggestions and votes coming!
