Google badmouths HTTP behind its back, proposes SPDY as a speedy successor - Engadget. Google is touting SPDY, as a speedier mobile addition to HTML for web browsing. Already implementing it in Chrome, Microsoft appears to be following. Using the new system, page load times are 23% faster on the Galaxy Nexus, the flagship phone of the Android line. And, along with speedy 4G LTE Internet speeds, the future of mobile is SPDY. Since everything seems to be going mobile and to the cloud, this is a no brainer. SPDY doesn't replace HTML; it just optimizes it. When sent over SPDY, the HTTP requests are processed, tokenized, simplified and compressed. Think of it as shorthand HTML. By the way, SPDY isn't an acronym; so, you don't have to learn another one. It is just a shortened version of "Speedy". Now, when you are next discussing the future of computing with your friends, you will sound like you know what you are talking about. Aren't you glad?
