I'm not aware of any problem with this on Windows - I can't say for Linux,
Mac or otherwise. I would expect a Windows web browser to be able to
download a gz file OK. Whether or not that gz file can then be opened
depends on what application you have associated with such files on your

e.g. I just tried it with Internet Explorer 7 and it successfully downloaded
a tar.gz file and launched WinZip to open it.
