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."

So, after ripping all the features for Chrome off from their competitors and offering none new, now they want to copy paste Opera Unite into their new client-server HTTPish protocol. Will Google ever create anything innovative?


what do you mean 'rip off' and 'offering none'? their source is there for everyone to also 'rip off' and every webkit change they've done has been committed back to webkit, they didn't fork.
