There's an old (2.5 years) question asking Will Stack Exchange support SPDY?, which was answered with a "not in the foreseeable future".
Fast forward those 2.5 years, and now at least parts of SE network support SPDY/3.1 - at least, SO and Meta.SE do (not Meta.SO, interestingly enough).
However, SPDY/3.1 itself is going away in the foreseeable future.
- Google has set 2016-05-15 as the cutoff date for SPDY support in favor of finalized HTTP/2.
This date has passed, and Chrome 51 no longer supports SPDY.
- Nginx already dropped SPDY support.
- Edge never supported SPDY, opting for HTTP/2 instead.
So, what's the status on replacing SPDY with HTTP/2? CloudFlare, that SE uses to the best of my knowledge, supports it.
Any chance that this happens
before Chrome cutoff soon?
