Google's faster internet standard has become the de facto standard

Now anyone can take advantage of one of Google's many efforts to speed up the internet. Additionally, after you upgrade one of the Internet Basics.

Quic is a protocol for transferring data between computers that can improve internet speed and security.

It can replace TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) from 1974.

Earlier this week, the IETF Internet Engineering Task Force, which is setting various standards for global networks, published Quic as a standard.

Web browsers and online services have tested the technology for many years, but the IETF statement states that the standard is mature enough to be accepted in full.

On a basic level of data transmission, the Internet is difficult to improve. Countless hardware, software, and services have been developed to use the decades-old infrastructure.

Since Google first announced Quic as an experimental extension for Google Chrome in 2013, Quic has been growing for nearly eight years.

Nevertheless, updating the Internet base is essential to keep the global communications strong and the backbone of commerce developed.

That's why engineers have to put in so much energy to make big changes: Quic, HTTPS, and IPv6.

Question from Google:

In a 2017 research report by Quic, Google said the in-house version of the technology reduced waiting for web search results on the computer by 8% and on the phone by 4%.

Waiting time to watch videos on YouTube reduced by 18% (computer users) and 15% (mobile users).

TCP update:

Transmission control protocol controls how data is sent from one computer to another over the Internet.

TCP and Quic are used in conjunction with another standard IP, which is the Internet Protocol.

TCP controls how data is divided into individual processing packets, sent over the routing infrastructure of the Internet, and reassembled at the other end of the connection.

The job of TCP is to make the Internet resilient enough to withstand nuclear attacks.

In particular, TCP solves the problem of establishing a connection and recovering data packets lost during transmission.

Quic wants to be the same, but better.

It subscribes to another internet standard called UDP (User Datagram Protocol), which is faster than TCP. However, there is no mechanism in TCP to recover lost data packets.

Quic has its own independent recovery mechanism that is faster than TCP.

Quic is also faster to set up encrypted connections, which is an important consideration because Quic is the basis of the HTTP standard that browsers use to access web pages.

And on the Internet, less delay adds to the big problem.

Quic should be able to handle network changes more flexibly, for example, when you leave your home wireless network and use your phone's cellular network.
