      Description

        This change removes the "zipped index files" feature, which was introduced as part of JDK-8141492: Implement search feature in javadoc.

        In a nutshell, the feature is being removed for the following reasons.

        1. It doesn't work correctly
        2. It targets only index files, though there are plenty of HTML pages having a similar size
        3. HTTP compression is widespread and provides a more uniform and robust solution

        See the below Comments section and the linked RFR thread for more details.
