[TR] Welcome to a Faster Web.

SPDY, a protocol Google revealed in late 2009, dramatically speeds up Web page loading by changing the way that browsers communicate with servers. Until now, Google has only tested the research project internally and deployed it on a few of its own sites. But today, the protocol launches as a commercial product.

Website optimization company Strangeloop has built SPDY into its flagship product Site Optimizer, software that sits in between a website and its users, and adjusts the site's code to make pages load more quickly. Strangeloop's customers will have the ability to turn the protocol on easily; in tests, the protocol has sped up websites by 10 to 20 percent.
After almost 2 years, SPDY is finally out in the wild!
Set your DNS to OPENDNS and enjoy the ride.

Is this the same protocol that was talked about on Security Now podcast?

Yeah thanks a lot because, I have FiOS and before changing my DNS to OpenDNS, I could never load 1080p YouTube videos for some reason. Now every video loads instantly and fully.

How can we actually benchmark this ourselves? As in, 10-20% sounds like a lot, but if a page usually loads in under 3 seconds, it's not a massive or easily noticeable real world difference, unless you sit there with a stop watch every time you click a link.
