Facebook Adopts SPDY HTTP2 Protocol [news.cnet.com]
Facebook has settled on a networking protocol for speeding up web content delivery. In a W3 mailing list post titled "HTTP2 Expression of Interest," Facebook engineer Doug Beaver outlined why the company has started implementing the SPDY protocol, which is not an acronym but just a short version for the word "speedy," and why it is not interested in HTTP Speed+Mobility or Network-Friendly HTTP Upgrade.

"We at Facebook are enthusiastic about the potential for an HTTP/2.0 standard that will deliver enhanced speed and safety for Web users," Beaver writes. "Of the three proposals, we recommend the use of SPDY as the basis for development of the HTTP/2.0 specification, but feel that the requirement for a secure transport must be added. We plan to continue developing and optimizing our HTTP, TLS, and SPDY implementations and are deploying them on a global scale. We look forward to sharing our experiences with the community."
