    Up till now, the SPDY protocol has only been well-supported on other web servers, such as nginx


    "We’re pleased to announce that Google has formally donated mod_spdy’s code to the Apache Software Foundation, and it is now a part of the Apache httpd codebase."

    "The intent is to work on making it fully part of [Apache] 2.4 and, of course, a core part of 2.6/3.0” - Jim Jagielski, co-founder of the ASF.

    "Being a part of Apache core will make SPDY support even more widely available for Apache httpd users, and pave the way for HTTP/2.0. It will also further improve that support over the original version of mod_spdy by better integrating SPDY and HTTP/2.0’s multiplexing features with the core part of the server."

    Well this was unexpected. Cool and will make for a better web, but very unexpected.

    Still think nginx is faster. Although Apache is so "plug and play" that it is easier to learn and configure.

    That is indeed good news for Apache users.

    Although, being so invested in Nginx (+ngx_pagespeed + SPDY) these past 3 yrs it been harder working with Apache (no control panel ones). Especially, with my Centmin Mod Nginx stack - most of the Nginx admin related tasks like creating vhosts and such I just have to select the right menu option to do or use command shortcuts to initiate :D

    All that needs to happen is the cost of SSL certificates to come down especially for wildcard ones etc :)

    I'm not waiting for this, instead SPDY 4.0 for Nginx :D
