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."

None of this crap is new

This has been developed by all major OS vendors, Apache, W3C and other projects.

Google spits on it, calls it a new project with a lame name and suddenly it's gold?

Get real.

Wake me when Apache 3.0 becomes reality and the overhead they will rip out for that projects becomes consumable.

That alone will drop a major amount of delay on interactions between the client/server model.
