I read somewhere that there will be a change in the HTTP format but the story did not give further insight into it. What changes will be made? Will it improve usability of the internet? If it does, in which way? I only need to understand this, your help is appreciated.
The HTTP standard being upgraded?
Yes there will be change in HTTP format. The current HTTP 1.1 version which we are using created in the year of 1999. In February, 2015 IETF(Internet Engineering Task Force) informed that they are going to publish HTTP/2. It has not been published yet. It will go through RFC editor and they it will be officially published.
You can taste the HTTP/2 now using the “h2-14” protocol identifier in Firefox and Chrome browser.
