Google's new QUIC protocol

Hi everyone

Just to bring your attention to this:

How / if Meteor can take advantage of this? Just wondering.

in a low traffic scenario the difference will not be perceived by the user. In a high traffic scenario, it could be useful. On the long term, everybody should use this, but it will take a lot of time before it becomes a standard thing. Lack of native browser support make this not viable for now.

Anyhow rather than a meteor thing, this is a node/nginx thing. Meteor doesnt know what TCP/UDP is, meteor talks in DDP or via Node in HTTP.
