Google Introduces New Web Protocol QUIC To Make The Web Faster

sfcrazy (1542989) writes "In order to make 'web' faster, Google has been secretly working on a new web protocol called QUIC. The company has released the source code for Chromium implementation of Quic on their website. But it has also started a debate whether this is the right way to introduce a protocal. Jan Wildeboer of Red Hat has says, "Google trying to introduce yet another proprietary protocol instead of open standards? And even if the implementation is open source, the specification is vendor driven, not an open standard AFAICS. IMHO this is not acceptable." But Simon Phipps, the president and director of Open Source Initiative tends to disagree with Wildeboer and says, "On the contrary, +Jan Wildeboer, this is exactly how standards should work; with a strong working example and open source code. As long as Google bow to consensus when the standards discussion occurs, what we will see is working ideas perfected and then mature consensus standardised.""
