What Is HTTP/2?

HTTP/2 like any good upgrade, will address some issues with the previous version, and as a result, your web browser will load pages more quickly. This is exciting—but it’s also rather revealing in terms of web history. As the internet’s evolved, web pages have steadily increased in size, like, a lot. […] There is a potential downside, sort of. HTTP/2 won’t work with certain types of encryption. However, it will open the door for better types of encryption, and browsers are using the upgrade as an opportunity to boost security. Rumor has it that Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome will soon only support HTTPS connections. (By the way, the “S” on HTTPS simply means that the protocol is run through a secure protocol, usually Transport Layer Security.) – Adam Clark Estes, Gizmodo
