-quic protocol makes loading web pages faster




According to Google, can provide the quic proprietary protocol for a substantial improvement in the loading speed of web pages. The company has the protocol tested in the last time, and reports that a large part of the compounds benefit from the protocol.

The results of the tests can be found on the blog of Google. Quic, which stands for Quick UDP Internet Connections, already introduced in 2013 and has since been tested by the Internet giant. The protocol works over UDP and can secure connections to create similar to the commonly used TLS. The intention is that the number of times that user’s server and communicate back and forth in order to establish a connection to be reduced.

Thus, for example, no need to round trips take place as server and client already “talk” with each other. This is in contrast to tcp + tls which does have this need. Also, as a server and client does not have previously communicated with each other, the number of back-and-forth with connections Quic less. All in all, that speed gains. From Google’s tests show that 75 percent of the compounds benefit from communication through quic instead of TCP + TLS because there is no round trips are needed.

In addition to a reduction in the number of round trips is Quic designed with the goal to reduce packet loss. Thus there are correction mechanisms to ensure that packets with errors need not be sent again. In addition, there are fewer packets will be lost than with other communication protocols. The techniques used are mainly responsible for slow connections for speed improvements, according to Google. For those in the top 1 percent with the slowest connection speed gain can be as high as 1 second to load the Google page. YouTube-use over slow connections quic creates 30 percent less buffering messages, according to tests.

Google has quic tested in recent times through Chrome users who connect to the services of the company. By now be about half of these compounds are prepared via Quic. The successful tests, Google plans to submit quic as web standard, as it did at the SPDY protocol. However, there is still some work to be done, says the webgigant.
