HTTP/2 and its importance

HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) is the protocol which works in transport layer for data communication in World Wide Web (www) i.e. Internet. So, the hypertext has hyperlinks which allow the user to access to other resources or from server to client. Many transport protocol have been updated since the base was developed. However, HTTP/2 or HTTP 2.0 version is the new version of HTTP 1.1. The HTTP protocol was not updated since 1992 due to speed, security or user-friendly issues.
Importance of HTTP/2 Protocol
First, the HTTP/2 makes your system works in a three rare combination way simple, fast and more robust. This protocol works within the transport layer to send data which undo the initial work of HTTP 1.1 and starts its better works. Moreover, it makes our system more effective and grows performance. Some of the main reasons why HTTP/2 is better over the older version HTTP 1.1 are as follows:
·        HTTP/2 is binary not textual.
·        Because of its multiplexed feature, it can request multiple data process at a time in parallel in single TCP connection.
·        Also, this protocol allows you to download the web files in asynchronous mode from a single server while even modern browser limits TCP connection.
·        It decreases overhead through head compression called HPACK.
·        It makes the website load faster by reducing additional round trip times (RTT).
·        As it is the basic foundation internet protocol, it is well supported by most of the recent browser as well.
So, with the main aim to clear away the incomplete or slow work of its older version, this protocol was updated. To discard those slow page load and slow internet connection trends, the aim to develop a protocol to work faster was in concept.
Similarly, there was a will for new internet technology compared to older outdated versions with lots of limitations.
There was an essence of fast and strong data transformation which would be able to handle a lots of data.
