No HTTP for Chrome?

Something that Google has been keeping quiet: If you use Google services in Chrome, you’re probably not getting your pages via HTTP. You’re getting your pages via SPDY (SPeeDY), a new protocol that Google has been cooking up. Reportedly, SPDY can transfer pages from the server to your browser up to twice as fast as HTTP.

Check out Ilya Grigorik’s write-up for more about SPDY.
