Google has planned to speed up Internet connection by “QUIC”. Google has revealed that about half of all the requests from the Chrome to Google server are now served over “QUIC”.
“QUIC” means Quick UDP Internet connection. It refers to Google’s experimental, low-latency Internet transportation protocol over UDP. Its main aim is to combine the best features of UPD and TCP with modern security tools.
The counterpart of UDP and QUIC in the protocol world is TCP, which, along with the Internet Protocol (IP), makes up the core communication language of the Internet. UDP is significantly more lightweight than TCP, but, in return, it features far fewer error correction services than TCP. See more
