Firefox is one of the most popular web browsers, but Chrome is a powerful competitor. According to web analytics firm StatCounter, Google Chrome browser has overtaken Firefox as the second most popular browser around the world for the first time.
Firefox is catching up with Chrome gradually by adding some features that Chrome has owned. Currently, Mozilla indicates that they will contain SPDY protocol support in Firefox 11. But by default, SPDY protocol support is disabled and you need to enable it by setting the preference “network.http.spdy.enabled” value to true in about:config.
Are you familiar with SPDY protocol? Well, according to Wikipedia, SPDY (pronounced speedy) is a networking protocol for transporting web content developed by Google and used in accessing Google web services from their browser Google Chrome. For every Chrome user, by visiting chrome://net-internals/ page, then you can see SPDY protocol status which has been enabled in Chrome.
