Google 為 Chrome 開發 QUIC 用來替代 UDP
目前 QUIC 已經整合進 Chrome、Chromium Source code 裡面了, 詳可見下述:
QUIC also focuses on data streams, with the extra benefit of adding a built-in encryption layer and some reliability and performance enhancements, including forward error correction.
From examination of the code it seems like its main use is to run a TCP-like flow and congestion control mechanism over UDP. This would allow more control to the application rather than in the OS.
不過目前都還沒看到 Google 有發任何新聞稿, 只有在 TechCrunch 看到此篇: Looks Like Google Is Working On A UDP Replacement Called QUIC, 到底後續會如何還不知道~ 先做個記錄囉~ 🙂
