Purpose of this Evaluation
Evaluate the gains of using HTTP/1.1 for basic web transport
Does HTTP/1.1 fulfill its design goals?
For the network? (network traffic/behavior)
For the end user? (perceived speed)
Test Persistent Connections, Pipelining and Range Requests
Tested two common situations
First Time Retrieval (Filling the cache)
Subsequent Retrievals (Cache validation)
Have not investigated benefits of HTTP/1.1 caching facilities or
(e.g. gzip compression)
This work is still very much "Work In Progress"
