Faster Web Browsing with HTTP/2
- Internet Engineering Task Force’s (IETF)
- Inspired by Google’s SPDY
- HTTP/1.1 was formally introduced in 1999
- Google will replace its SPDY protocol with HTTP/2 in Chrome by early 2016
To cut it short
The web is soon to be revamped. A new version of Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP/2) is designed to speed up the loading of web pages. It will also allow users to view more than one portion of information at a time from one site and request data from several websites at once. However, a few critics suggest that HTTP/2 won’t work with certain types of encryption. As long as the elevated websites like Google, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn permit the use of HTTP/2, the upgrade is a ten on ten.
