Don't confuse compression algorithms with compression formats.

DEFLATE is a compression format. 'inflate' and 'deflate' are just
traditional names for 'uncompress from DEFLATE format' and 'compress to
DEFLATE format'. See for DEFLATE

LZ77 is a common compression algorithm. There are many incompatible
compression formats based on LZ77.
