Imagine walking into an artist’s studio. You will certainly see a huge array of colors, paints, brushes, palettes, you name it. If that artist is painting at that moment, and you were to look at the palette the artist is using on his current art board, without even seeing the painting, you can kind of get a feeling for the mood of that painting.

If there were dark shades of blues, purples, grays and black mixed together and being used, you wouldn’t think that they are trying to portray a daylight scene. You’d probably guess that it were either of a night sky, or just a darker theme in general.

It’s finally here, the next big thing you didn’t know you were waiting for:  Hypertext Transfer Protocol 2 (HTTP/2). I’m sure you’re asking yourself “what is that?” I was too, so I did some reading. HTTP/2 is the latest approved version of HTTP, the protocol used by browsers to download websites from servers. The last version, 1.1, has not been updated since 1999, which may as well been a lifetime ago considering the evolutionary speed of web development.

The world has drastically changed since then and now it’s time that the underpinning system of how these websites are delivered catches up.
