The better SPDY Protocol

No doubt that any reader could explain What HTTP & HTTPS are, but some might be on late info with SPDY.Browsers and web-servers to start to supporting SPDY protocol (faster & more powerful alternative to HTTP protocol). SPDY is an application layer protocol which increases security while decreasing latency. SPDY is on track for a possible re-naming to HTTP/2.0, and is being actively implemented by important contingents of the web community external to Google.

Well, according to Wikipedia, SPDY (pronounced speedy) is a networking protocol for transporting web content developed by Google and used in accessing Google web services from their browser Google Chrome.For every Chrome user, by visiting chrome://net-internals/#spdy page, then you can see SPDY protocol status which has been enabled in Chrome.SPDY is a transparent replacement for HTTP, though, and as such it’s rather hard to see its effects. Google’s sites definitely feel fast in Chrome, but there are more technologies than just SPDY at work.
