Can we just call it http2 please? What’s this h2 nonsense?
Why is one abbreviation more correct than another?
For one thing, h2 already means something else.
Don’t most two character acronyms match multiple unrelated bits of tech (and most pronounceable 3-4 letter ones too)?
I suspect acronym and name collisions are here to stay.
Primarily, because one’s a well known term and the other (as far as I can tell) completely invented for this article presumably to sound hip and cool.
Loading https://google.com.au in chrome and firefox, the debugging
network pane shows http/2+quic/37 and HTTP/2+h2.
If I recall correctly, h2 is the standards compliant flavour of HTTP/2
and quic/37 is google trying to make it faster.
the longer abbreviation has more space and is less likely to clash with something else.
