The Akamai Blog


HTTP is one of the powering forces of the Internet today. However, HTTP has barely changed in over a decade, and carries with it many limitations that cripple our everyday user experience. SPDY, and subsequently HTTP/2, aim to address those limitations and offer a new and improved way to access content on the web. This video explains these new techniques, along with their limitations and status.

Guy, thank you for a great overview of SPDY. You packed a lot of information into ten minutes and kept it clear, approachable, and balanced. This is providing my team and upper management a good understanding of SPDY's pros and cons, as well as the realistic implications we will need to think through.

I'm loving these Akamai blog entries. Keep them coming!
