SPDY: A clean-slate replacement for HTTP
As part of Google's "Let's make the web faster" initiative, we are experimenting with alternative protocols to help reduce the latency of web pages. One of these experiments is SPDY (pronounced "SPeeDY"), an application-layer protocol for transporting content over the web, designed specifically for minimal latency. In lab tests, we have compared the performance of these applications over HTTP and SPDY, and have observed up to 64% reductions in page load times in SPDY.
We hope to engage the greater community to contribute ideas, feedback, code, and test results, to make SPDY the next-generation application protocol for a faster web.
