It’s time to demand HTTP/2 for your site.

TL, DR (Too long, didn’t read).

  • You should upgrade to HTTP/2
  • Sooner is better
  • Some users don’t support it, but they will. Investing in HTTP/1.1 optimized design is short-sighted, and will have to be undone in future regardless.
  • Making page loads faster
  • Making it possible your development team to optimize your website for good development and good performance.

What are the advantages?

  • Reduce the amount of data transmitted to our users (especially important for mobile).
  • Make more efficient use of the network connection.
  • Allow browsers to prioritize certain assets, decreasing page render time.
  • Allow better quality and more innovative application development.

Why should you care?

What are the risks?

  • Chrome (Android, Windows 10, Windows 8, Linux)
  • Safari (iOS 9, Safari 10.11+)
  • Edge (Windows 10)
  • IE 11 (Windows 10)
  • Opera (Windows, Linux)
  • Firefox (Windows, Linux)
