HTTP 2.0 Protocol more secure and efficient internet
HTTP 2.0 Protocol has been officially finalized and approved, will come in next few weeks. All major browser will support this brand new HTTP 2.0 Protocol in their next update. HTTP, or Hypertext Transfer Protocol is one of the web standard. This is used as http:// or https:// at the beginning of a web address. HTTP 2.0 is the second major version of the HTTP network protocol after 1999. It is based on SPDY Protocol (also pronounced as speedy). HTTP/2 was developed by the IETF’s HTTP Working Group, which maintains the HTTP protocol. It’s made up of a number of HTTP implementers, users, network operators and HTTP experts.
What is HTTP 2.0 Protocol
According to the official page: [quote_box_center]HTTP/2 is a replacement for how HTTP is expressed “on the wire.” It is not a ground-up rewrite of the protocol; HTTP methods, status codes and semantics are the same, and it should be possible to use the same APIs as HTTP/1.x (possibly with some small additions) to represent the protocol.[/quote_box_center]
The focus of the protocol is on performance; specifically, end-user perceived latency, network and server resource usage. One major goal is to allow the use of a single connection from browsers to a Web site.
HTTP 2.0 Protocol is comprised of two major specifications:
- Hypertext Transfer Protocol version 2.
- HPACK – Header Compression for HTTP/2
key differences between HTTP/1.x and HTTP2.0
At a high level, HTTP 2.0 Protocol is:
- is binary, instead of textual
- is fully multiplexed, instead of ordered and blocking
- can therefore use one connection for parallelism
- uses header compression to reduce overhead
- allows servers to “push” responses proactively into client cache.
When I can use HTTP 2.0
HTTP/2 is currently available in Firefox and Chrome for testing, using the “h2-14” protocol identifier. There are also several servers available.
Finally HTTP 2.0 protocol is the next generation protocol which is committed to provide fast, secure more efficient web experience. to know more about HTTP 2.0 refer the official FAQ.
