    GZ: Gzip uses the DEFLATE algorithm for compression of archive and differs from the ZIP archive format in applying the compression algorithm on complete archive rather than individual files. This format was initially developed to replace compression formats on UNIX systems. Applications such as WinZip can open GZ files to view its contents on both Windows and MacOS. GZ files often store .TAR archives that contain multiple files. TAR files compressed with gzip compression typically have a .tar.gz or .tgz file extension and are known as 'tarballs'.
