NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radarUnderstand more

The SPDY protocol was developed by Google from 2009 as an experiment to provide an alternative protocol to address performance shortcomings of HTTP/1.1. The new HTTP/2 standard protocol includes many of the key performance features of SPDY, and Google has announced it will drop browser SPDY support in early 2016. If your application requires the features of SPDY, we recommend you look instead at HTTP/2.

SPDY is an open networking protocol for low-latency transport of web content proposed for HTTP 2.0 that has seen a rise in modern browser support. SPDY reduces page load time by prioritizing the transfer of subresources so that only one connection is required per client. Transport layer security is used in SPDY implementations with the transmission headers gzip or deflate compressed instead of human-readable text as in HTTP. It is great for high-latency environments.
