HTTP

HTTP/3

The protocol that's been called HTTP-over-QUIC for quite some time has now changed name and will officially become HTTP/3.

The QUIC Working Group in the IETF works on creating the QUIC transport protocol. QUIC is a TCP replacement done over UDP. Originally, QUIC was started as an effort by Google and then more of a "HTTP/2-encrypted-over-UDP" protocol.
