Make the most of HTTP/2

Web Designer - - Tutorials | Node.js 10: What’s New? -

When HTTP was spec­i­fied, web­sites were, by and large, sim­ple af­fairs. Reestab­lish­ing a TCP con­nec­tion for each re­source was a rather mim­i­mal over­head when taken in con­text. As page com­plex­ity in­creased, steps were made to elim­i­nate pro­to­col in­ef­fi­cien­cies. This re­sulted in an up­graded HTTP pro­to­col called HTTP/2, which lets the browser and the server re­cy­cle an al­ready-es­tab­lished TCP con­nec­tion in an at­tempt to re­duce la­tency and over­head. Fur­ther in­for­ma­tion on HTTP/2’S tech­ni­cal ben­e­fits can be found at http2.github.io/

— while Github hosts the page, its con­tents are main­tained by the IETF and con­tains all kinds of valu­able in­for­ma­tion.
