💡 HTTP/3 is the third version of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), formerly known as HTTP-over-QUIC.
QUIC was originally developed by Google and is the successor to HTTP/2. The likes of Google and Facebook already use QUIC to speed up the web.
A Brief History of HTTP
For game developers, the important protocol is UDP (User Datagram Protocol). UDP is the fast, fire-and-forget standard: you throw a packet on the network and it gets caught or sometimes dropped.
For systems like the web that require stability, the underlying protocol to use correctly is TCP (Transmission Control Protocol). This is a more formal system that guarantees the delivery of packets in the correct order. TCP creates a reliable connection and later a reliable flow of information.
Subsequently, they were officially named “TCP/IP stacks”.
Later, the WWW and HTTP based on TCP/IP became the main uses of the Internet. Another missing acronym is TLS (Transport Layer Security), which provides encryption related elements and became the de facto security standard.
In those days, the connections between PCs were usually wired, and any loss was due to noise from old copper wires.
The TCP protocol is great for collecting occasionally erroneous packets, and the use of the UDP protocol is gradually decreasing as the Web grows.
The Internet today has entered a very different scene of development.
