Participating in the Internet democracy occasionally means that technologies that were once popular lose their utility as newer technologies emerge. SPDY is one such technology. As a result, we're announcing our intention to deprecate the use of SPDY for connections made to Cloudflare's edge.
One thing we take pride in at Cloudflare is embracing new protocols and standards that help make the Internet faster and safer. Sometimes this means that we’ll launch support for experimental features or standards still under active development, as we did with TLS 1.3.
