What is SPDY ?

SPDY means speedy. It is an experimental networking protocol developed primarily at Google for transporting web content. Its main objective is to reduce loading time of any web page. It modifies the way HTTP requests and responses are sent over the wire.

SPDY transports the web content using fewer TCP connections by multiplexing large numbers of transactions to one TLS connection. Read Mozilla Hacks: SPDY Brings Responsive and Scalable Transport to Firefox 11
