HTTP/2 – A Real-World Performance Test and Analysis [↗]

Our conclusions are therefore:

  1. HTTP/2 is faster in terms of performance and site loading time than HTTP1.x.
  2. Minification and other ways of reducing the size of the web page being served is always going to provide more benefits than the overhead required to perform this “minification”.
  3. Reducing the distance between the server and the client will always provide page loading time performance benefits so using a CDN is still a necessity if you want to push the performance envelope of your site, whether you’ve enabled HTTP/2 or not.

No real surprises, but if you’re interested in implementing HTTP/2, it’s worth a read. Talking of which, I still need to fix this.
