Well as it just lists the file names and not there size on the development page we can't really be sure which is the smallest. I think bz2 is normally the smallest followed by gzip, but I can't be sure.

man bzip2 wrote: As a self-check for your protection, bzip2 uses 32-bit CRCs to make
sure that the decompressed version of a file is identical to the origi‐
nal. This guards against corruption of the compressed data, and
against undetected bugs in bzip2 (hopefully very unlikely). The
chances of data corruption going undetected is microscopic, about one
chance in four billion for each file processed.
self checking, yay.

I can of course read all 3 of the formats (just change a flag in tar, -z for GZip -j for BZip)
