First commerical use for SPDY

Google’s SPDY is a web protocol designed as an improvement over HTTP.

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.

Mainstream adoption may prove difficult for Google; the protocol requires changes to both browsers and server software. Currently, the only browser to support SPDY is Google Chrome.
