I wanted to measure the improvements in request scheduling on which I worked the last weeks.
They are visible, they will not win the war, I like them nevertheless.

Just so we are seeing apples-to-apples, in the 8 connection case, I
presume you have
8 h2 connections each with 6 parallel requests?  In the http/1.1 case,
I presume we
would test 48 parallel requests divided between the 6 different objects?

You could argue for single, but the most representative
of-the-real-world comparison
is probably 2 or 4 concurrent connections, which is the pattern of
most modern browsers.
