This week begins face to face meetings at the IETF on how to approach HTTP 2.0 and improve the Internet. How the industry moves forward together on the next version of HTTP – how every application and service on the Web communicates today – can have a positive impact on user experience, operational and environmental costs, and even the battery life of the devices you carry around.
As part of this discussion of HTTP 2.0, Microsoft will submit to the IETF a proposal for “HTTP Speed+Mobility.” The approach we propose focuses on Web performance improvements at the same time it takes into account the important needs of mobile devices and applications.
You can read more here about this proposal and an approach to HTTP 2.0 which considers network speed, cost, and device battery life, and works for everyone from sites owners, content providers, to consumers.
