    Hello IIS Architects,

    When can we see SPDY support in IIS?

    Please remember both NGINX and Apache are supporting SPDY already. 

    Can we have someone at MS explain the MS view on this subject? Do we still see a effort towards HTTP SPEED& Mobile, than SPDY?

    I am not from Microsoft. But clearly even if NGINX and Apache support SPDY, it does not mean any other web servers should do the same.

    My view is that SPDY is still an experimental protocol. For Microsoft, it should be better to participate actively in the standardization process and then implement HTTP 2.0. This is in fact what Microsoft is doing if you check HTTP 2.0 working group. If that's not "an effort towards HTTP SPEED&Mobile", I will wonder how high the bar you set.

    i cannot totally agree that it is an experimental protocol since it start on 2012 and around 3 years ago. since his IE also support this .

    we all know HTTP2.0 has include most of SPDY features , do you know is there any work around on here ?? or there are some official said that they will not support SPDY ??

    @rex yau, I did not create the term "experimental" myself, but simply quoted from IE team blog, if you haven't read in the past,

    Of course, nowadays it is pretty difficult to say what is experimental, as HTML 5 has been used widely already before its standards are finalized. Therefore, it makes the vendors (not only Microsoft) difficult to determine what should be supported and at what level. Keep in mind that experimental protocols can change significantly (like the WebSocket story), and can also suffer potential security issues.
