    Just got a notice from Cloudflare this morning that my site was switched to HTTPS/2. It's much faster! Note: it's a cpanel server, haven't made the switch to centminmod yet (at the end of the month).

    HTTP/2 is here! Goodbye SPDY? Not quite yet

    I'm noticing a nice speed improvement. Should be really fast once I get everything moved over to Centminmod. :)

    PHP7, Cloudflare HTTPS/2... what's next? Free flights to Hawaii?

    Keep an eye on Centmin Mod 123.09 betas which have added support for ngx_brotli compression module, it compresses better than gzip so your web pages, css, js all will be anywhere between 10-40% smaller than they are now. Only activates on HTTPS and with Firefox 44+ see caniuse.com/#feat=brotli.

    Details from 123.09 beta official thread

    Looks like Cloudflare is working on enabling HTTP/2 server push too which is currently disabled in Nginx's HTTP/2 module HTTP/2 is here! Goodbye SPDY? Not quite yet
    Some idea of what HTTP/2 server push will bring from author and dev of another HTTP/2 cable server, H2O here Kazuho's Weblog: Optimizing performance of multi-tier web applications using HTTP/2 push

    Also Cloudflare only speaks to origin servers using HTTP/1.1 not HTTP/2 see HTTP/2 is here! Goodbye SPDY? Not quite yet

    Good news next year Cloudflare plans to open source release their Nginx patch which reintroduces SPDY/3.1 support into Nginx 1.9.5+ so that you can run both SPDY/3.1 and HTTP/2 HTTP/2 is here! Goodbye SPDY? Not quite yet :cool:

    right now SPDY/3.1 adoption rate is still higher than HTTP/2 Can I use... Support tables for HTML5, CSS3, etc
