Third time's a charm and HTTP/3 knocks on the door.HTTP/3 is the coming next version of the protocol that is currently being developed by the QUIC working group in the IETF.
HTTP/3 improves in areas where HTTP/2 has some shortcomings, primarily by changing the transport layer. HTTP/3 is the first major protocol to step away from TCP and instead it uses QUIC. Are you ready for a post-TCP world?
Daniel Stenberg does a detailed presentation about the development of HTTP. How we have gone from HTTP/1 to HTTP/2 and why, and how now HTTP/3 and QUIC are being introduced and yet again things change. Why are the new protocols are deemed necessary, how do they work, how will they change how things are sent over the network and what some of the coming deployment challenges will be. The current HTTP/3 implementation status in your favorite browsers, servers and HTTP libraries? When will we see HTTP/3 in wide use?
