In conversation with Http/2

  • You can log into your own laptop and do a demo as well. If you have a very good internet connection, you may not find the difference noticeable.
  • Note that, how fast the images will load on HTP/2 versus Http/1.1
  • The server and client can push messages in parallel all the same TCP connections and it is incredible as it will greatly reduce latency.
  • It does also supports server-push i.e. Servers can now push the streams (multiple messages) for one request from the client and finally it saves lot of unwanted round-trips and hence again save few bucks on latency.
  • SSL is by-default first class citizen here in case of Http/2 and that’s the reason, Http/2 is secure by design.
