Web at Twice the Speed: Google Reveals Information on SPDY Project

In a recent blog post, Google engineers have revealed information about an early stage project called SPDY (pronounced "SPeeDY"), aimed at significantly boosting Web download speeds. According to the post, SPDY is an application-layer based protocol designed for minimizing latency. It says: "So far we have only tested SPDY in lab conditions. The initial results are very encouraging: when we download the top 25 websites over simulated home network connections, we see a significant improvement in performance - pages loaded up to 55% faster. There is still a lot of work we need to do to evaluate the performance of SPDY in real-world conditions."
