Technology proposal: HTTP/2

granmogol on 4 February 2015, 3 years ago

Please consider HTTP/2 among the technologies observed.

It is interesting to monitor the passage from HTTP/1.1 to HTTP/2 and also from SPDY to HTTP/2.

HTTP/2 already took over SPDY on Google sites.

Best regards

Hi Gianpaolo,

Thank you for that proposal. We will certainly keep an eye on HTTP/2, but it seems a bit premature to include it already, considering the marginal support by servers and browsers right now.

Hi there,

HTTP/2 is now a standard, as RFC 7540, published on May 14th.

It is already supported by the most recent versions of IIS, OpenLiteSpeed, LiteSpeed Web Server, Akamai Edge Server. Soon it will be supported by nginx as well.

Since many browsers already support HTTP/2 (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, IE 11), I expect a quicker diffusion than SPDY. Thus my further request to monitor it and, likely, the option to discontinue SPDY.

Best regards

Thanks for the reminder. We are already working on it.

HTTP/2 is now included in our surveys.

My congrats for this comparison page: https://w3techs.com/technologies/comparison/ce-http2,ce-spdy

I found it very useful. Could you also compare the usage of spdy/http2 on Top100 sites?

Sam Soltano (site administrator) on 1 December 2015, 2 years ago

Have a look at this https://w3techs.com/technologies/breakdown/ce-spdy/ranking and this https://w3techs.com/technologies/breakdown/ce-http2/ranking

Thanks, that's definitely interesting. My request is to have also a data point on Top100, can you?

Sam Soltano (site administrator) on 2 December 2015, 2 years ago

That would be a custom report. We can do that, but it's not available online.
