L'Internet Engineering Task Force sta per finalizzare la definizione di HTTP/2. Si tratta del più importante passo avanti da 16 anni di HTTP, il protocollo usato come principale sistema per la trasmissione d'informazioni sul web.
HTTP/2 is a very overdue upgrade to Hypertext Transfer Protocol, the basic protocol that handles connections between a web server and your browser. The original development of HTTP happened way back when Tim Berners Lee first imagined his World Wide Web project in the late 1980s. However the version of the protocol we currently use, HTTP/1.1, was officially introduced in 1999. Needless to say, the web has changed quite a bit in the past 15 years.
HTTP/2, like any good upgrade, will address some issues with the previous version, and as a result, your web browser will load pages more quickly.
