HTTP/3 stuff... and much more

HTTP/3 concepts and features

HTTP / 3 is supported on Chromium based browser, Firefox and has experimental support in Safari. Although the specification is a draft, it is widely accepted by CDN. Do you know what QUIC is? If not, it's time to learn more about its main concepts and improvements over HTTP / 2.

Websites optimizations

Jake Archibald has a lot to say about web performance. Take a look at his comparison of Formula 1 websites and what can be done to get them up and running faster. Do you think the websites of teams like Ferrari need to be fast? Well, you may be surprised 🙂

Do you know CSS container queries?

What’s new in Chrome DevTools 94?
