SPDY of the Future Might Blow Your Mind Today « Mike’s Lookout

SPDY is great in theory and it’s already being implemented in a fair number of sites, but it’s interesting to note that other solutions to a similar problem work less well. See Amazon Silk: (http://www.anandtech.com/show/5139/amazons-silk-browser-tested-less-bandwidth-consumed-but-slower-performance).

“One first step to reduce connection load is to migrate sites to SPDY. SPDY resides side by side with HTTP, so not everyone needs to move to SPDY at the same time. But for those pages that do move to SPDY, they’ll have reduced page load times and transmitted with always-on security. On top of that, these pages are much gentler on the the network too. Suddenly those 30-75 connections per page evaporate into only 7 or 8 connections per page (a little less than one per domain). For large site operators, this can have a radical effect on overall network behavior. Note that early next year, when Firefox joins Chrome implementing SPDY, more than 50% of users will be able to access your site using SPDY.”
