In concert with Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, Cloudflare is bringing the next-generation protocol to Internet users, at scale. The security, performance, and reliability company helping to build a better Internet, today announced support for HTTP/3, the new standard of the web that will make the Internet faster, more secure, and more reliable, for everyone. Cloudflare has been collaborating with industry peers, including Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, to bring HTTP/3 to the masses and progress the Internet into the future.
An efficient Internet requires the adoption of common, shared protocols to allow computers all over the world to communicate with each other. HTTP is the protocol modern websites, APIs, apps, and browsers are built on. Older versions of HTTP suffer from problems that frustrate users operating in real world conditions. HTTP/3, built on top of QUIC, is designed for the modern Internet. It will speed up connections and make use of the web more reliable and secure, especially for mobile devices.
“Pushing forward next-generation protocols is part of our mission to help build a better Internet,” said Matthew Prince, co-founder and CEO of Cloudflare. “Previously, the benefits of HTTP/3 were limited to the Internet giants like Facebook and Google. Now, we’re democratizing access to the next generation of Internet technologies by bringing HTTP/3 to everyone, for free.” READ MORE HERE
