"High Performance Browser Networking" has a new home @ https://hpbn.co.

Chapter updates...
- New "Building Blocks of TCP"
- New "Transport Layer Security (TLS)"
- New "HTTP/2" chapter

Also (drumroll), now with 100% more ServiceWorker under the hood! Which means you can access all the perf best practices {on,off}line.. anywhere and anytime you want! \o/
