Have you enabled mod_spdy on your website?

Enabling it significantly improves performance in so many ways! Such as saving connections on your server due to multiplexing multiple connections, requesting all page resources in one shot.

Instructions on how to enable mod_spdy could be found here:
https://developers.google.com/speed/spdy/mod_spdy/

If you are playing with WebSockets a lot, there is this experimental chrome switch which enables WebSockets over spdy! --enable-websocket-over-spdy

Thanks +Mike Belshe :)

looks it up turns out that it actually does deflate by default, and mod deflate is redundant
 
SPDY is a trademark of Google. That sucks arse. Is W3C too slow to get the improvements implemented in a draft HTTP standard?
 
Do you really think that being a trademark really would stop anything? Google wants it to be a standard
 
+Jeremy McMillan now I am scared because of my website name (see above), wonder if I should take it offline again. :(
I already plastered the whole page with (TM)'s
 
+Mike Belshe Thanks for laying this out to me. I guess I just leave it as it is for know and hope that Google won't sue me into oblivion over it (I haven't heard of a case were Google actually did such a thing, ...yet)
 
SPDY can help with the future of the internet. It reduces simplifies HTTP requests (push instead of pull for everything with smaller headers plus compression)
 
Ironically, long ago (circa 2004), I did get a cease-and-desist request from Google for use of a logo with alleged similarity to the Google! At the time it was annoying, then it turned funny, now I consider it a badge of honor!
 
Awesome, is it only for Linux or Windows as well?
 
+Rajesh Kongathi It's a networking protocol (somewhere in-between TCP and HTTP (??)), it needs to be supported by your browser (and the webserver you're connecting to), so it really is OS agnostic.
 
I really wish this plus putting all cache in ram became standard
 
+Scott Rosenberg I checked the source code for you, and it does indeed compile under Windows. It uses GYP (Generate Your own Projects) which Chromium uses, and it will create a VS solutions file for you.
