What you need to know about the new web standard HTTP/2
Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is the basis of the data transmission on the Internet since 1999. This Internet protocol is used for a long time, but the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) recently announced the completion of HTTP2.
This version is designed to be the first major update of the protocol of 16 years and looked forward to by many. Therefore, it is good to learn more details about this update.
We offer information on most important things you need to know about HTTP2. This is necessary since after HTTP2 go through the editing process in the IETF, the protocol will be approved and declared a standard protocol.
Why requires that the HTTP?
For the past 16 years, HTTP drudge to provide web pages in your browser. When you enter a URL in the browser, for example szlifestyle.com, you actually create HTTP request to the web server and instruct it to find and provide you with certain web page.
But HTTP suffers from a number of limitations. Modern web pages offer more features than those who visited in 1999, and this of course, needs more resources to load a web page in the browser. Each function makes a separate HTTP request and the process slows down significantly. Therefore it is time for an update.
Where it comes HTTP2?
Some time ago, Google has developed a protocol SPDY. The protocol supports simultaneous transmission of multiple data connection in multiplex mode and uses compression technologies that reduce traffic volume. SPDY is supported by browsers Chrome and Firefox, as well as experimental version of Opera. SPDY, however, remained just an alternative to HTTP, not standard. We say this because SPDY becomes part of HTTP2. A group of programmers spent working on the experimental project SPDY will continue to work on HTTP2 Protocol.
How HTTP2 improve HTTP?
The transition to the new standard will HTTP2 is important for all Internet users, as they will be able to run many more HTTP requests at a time. Currently, many companies minimize HTTP requests with hacks that do things like combining multiple images in one file that is loaded at a time. But these hacks can create many problems. With HTTP 2 large number of requests will not be a problem, but something that is expected to be made.
Can I now use as a site visit HTTP2 protocol?
Not yet! If you are a programmer, you can see a few dozen test development, but the rest of the users will have to wait. But if you are a user of Chrome, you may be one of the first to test the new protocol.http://szlifestyle.com/sz/2015/02/21/what-you-need-to-know-about-the-new-web-standard-http-2/https://i0.wp.com/szlifestyle.com/sz/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/sz_http_2.jpg?fit=640%2C256https://i0.wp.com/szlifestyle.com/sz/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/sz_http_2.jpg?resize=150%2C150TECH NEWSTechnologyHypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is the basis of the data transmission on the Internet since 1999.
