I am a bit late on this post but its still May which marks the beginning of a faster web protocol. Chrome and Firefox already are capable for HTTP/2. Also while we wait for Servlet 4.0 to have HTTP/2, Jetty has already done quite some work on it. Apache HttpClient is also still awaited to use the new protocol. Following is how the protocol has evolved as derived from Akamai website.
Well it seems that the combination of HTTP/2 + HTML 5 is going to make a huge difference the way the pages load in our browsers now. Cant wait to see it all happen!!
