Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache and SPDY
Date Wed, 16 Sep 2015 15:51:15 GMT
SPDY has been superceeded by HTTP/2 as a protocol. Some browsers still support SPDY, however
it will int the mid-term go away. 

All major browsers nowadays support HTTP/2. That should make it a safer investment.

Apache httpd will support HTTP/2 in one of the next 2.4.x releases - hopefully the next one.
An experimental setup can be had at 

Apache will then support HTTP/2 over TLS and in the clear. All browsers do this only via TLS.
