Over at Smashing Magazine, Robin Marx has written a 3-part series on HTTP/3:
After almost five years in development, the new HTTP/3 protocol is nearing its final form. Earlier iterations were already available as an experimental feature, but you can expect the availability and use of HTTP/3 proper to ramp up over in 2021. So what exactly is HTTP/3? Why was it needed so soon after HTTP/2? How can or should you use it? And especially, how does it improve web performance? Let’s find out.
Finished the first part and must say I learnt a lot from it. Really interesting to know what goes on under the hood of the engine.
