Thanks! That was a great read.

Now only if web developers don't find more ways to bloat up their pages and nullify the speed and bandwidth improvements of QUIC. :D

Thanks.... only twice a month? I think I can handle that (make time for) so I signed up.

Thanks for that.

That syn/ack triple handshake is clearly a problem.

Notes:
1. Wireshark (naturally) can handle QUIC packets.
2. The site has an RSS feed (implemented primitively) so you don't even need to sign up for email if you use feeds.
