SPDY was developed by Google to replace and/or complement parts of the hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP) that cause latency. For example, SPFY supports an unlimited number of data streams via a single TCP connection, it can prioritize requests and compress request and response HTTP headers. Other than HTTP, it also allows servers to push data to clients without a corresponding client request. Google said that pageload performances increased by more than 60% in some cases. All current Chrome versions and all Google sites support SPDY.
