HTTP/2 finished, coming to browsers within weeks

HTTP 2.0 - a faster, more efficient Web protocol

Work on HTTP/2 began in 2012 in response to the development of Google's SPDY protocol. Google created SPDY to address a number of performance gripes that the company had with traditional HTTP.

Some Key Features:
  1. Successor to the HTTP/1.0 and HTTP/1.1 protocols.
  2.  Finalized by Internet Engineering Task Force's (IETF) HTTP Working Group.
  3.  Multiple bidirectional streams are multiplexed over a single TCP connection.
  4.  The streams over HTTP 2 are all independent; if one stream is slow, the HTTP/2 connection can still be used to transfer data belonging to other streams.
  5.  HTTP/2 is a binary protocol that splits requests and responses into sequences of non-human-readable frames that are transmitted over the TCP connection.
  6.  HTTP/2 also allows servers to push streams to clients without those clients having to make the initial request.
  7. HTTP/2 is based in large part on Google's SPDY. It can operate over TLS or over plain TCP.
