The State of HTTP/2 in Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer

Friday, February 20th, 2015

HTTP/2 isn’t quite ready for prime time yet, but it’s getting pretty darned close.

HTTP/2, an update of the original Hypertext Transfer Protocol last updated in 1999, is finally approved.  The update introduces several improvements such as faster user experience when browsing the Web, bandwidth reductions or easier use of secure connections. Work began back in 2012 when Google’s SPDY protocol was selected as the starting point.  You can check out the official Github page of HTTP/2 to access drafts and specifications.
