Google Google have created a new HTTP-based protocol "SPDY" (pronounced "Speedy") to solve the problem of the client-server latency with HTTP. "We want to continue building on the web's tradition of experimentation and optimization, to further support the evolution of websites and browsers. So over the last few months, a few of us here at Google have been experimenting with new ways for web browsers and servers to speak to each other, resulting in a prototype web server and Google Chrome client with SPDY support."

Google is not going to be more successfull just because of a faster implementation of HTTP. Every internet user would benefit from a faster WWW though, and anybody contributing to such a goal, paid or unpaid, successful or unsuccessful, deserves credit and respect.
