HTTP/2 and SPDY indicator

Description from extension meta

An indicator button for HTTP/2, SPDY and QUIC support by each website.

Image from store HTTP/2 and SPDY indicator
Description from store HTTP/2 (based on Google's SPDY) makes the information exchange between browser and server significantly more performant. Websites and applications that upgrade their infrastructure to support them are at a clear advantage. This extension shows a lightning icon in the address bar that's blue if the page is HTTP/2 enabled, green if the page is SPDY enabled, and gray if neither is available. Currently it leverages the browser API for determining this, which relies on the protocol used for the initial page request. **NEW in 1.0.0: support for latest Chrome, performance improvements, better icons!** **NEW in 0.7.1: title and description improvements"** **NEW in 0.7.0: added SPDY/5a1 support"** **NEW in 0.6.0: added HTTP/2 icon [MATSUU Takuto]"** **NEW in 0.5.0: added SPDY3.1 icon [MATSUU Takuto]"** **NEW in 0.4.0: fix SPDY2 icon and added QUIC! [MATSUU Takuto]"** **NEW in 0.3.0: version numbers for SPDY 2 and 3 in the icon [MATSUU Takuto]** **NEW in 0.2.0: option to disable gray icon when SPDY is not enabled**

  • (2019-11-07) Brian Gregory: Great. But how about showing HTTP/3 now that Chrome supports it?
  • (2019-03-21) Jakob Hirsch: gives deprecation warning in recent chrome versions because it's using loadTimes. Nice ext though.
  • (2018-10-31) yu liu: why i cannot see the red color, even when i open google and youtube? I have enable QUIC in my chrome. it always shows the blue color with http2 enabled. but i didn't find quic session

  • (2016-03-25) Michał Kwiatek: blue icon on dark theme doesn't look good
  • (2016-03-11) Александр Шишенко: Great tool, but latest update was not cool. A tiny icon in address bar is better (and less clutter-y) than a huge button.

  • (2016-01-23) Alexander Fradynskyi: Thank you!
  • (2015-12-02) Dead J. Dona: put icon back to address bar!!!!!!!!
  • (2015-11-10) Ken Tobias: Very nice except that clicking the icon is now broken for HTTP2/SPDY as the name has changed in chrome.

  • (2020-07-23, v:1.0.0) soundspark: Add indicator for HTTP/3 QUIC
    Just tested on quic.nginx.org after enabling QUIC h3-27 in the command line, but the extension is not indicating any accelerated protocol. Perhaps, since SPDY is dead use red for HTTP/3?
  • (2019-07-15, v:1.0.0) Nick: Chrome load times
    Hi Chrome loadTimes() will be deprecated. It already started to show up some warnings. It would be good to fix it. https://www.chromestatus.com/features/5637885046816768 Thanks
  • (2019-03-22, v:1.0.0) Dark Mode color-scheme
    The Blue used to indicate HTTP/2 is poorly contrasted when in Dark Mode. Perhaps automatically switch the color in Dark Mode to a yellow/green, or make the color selectable - either by explicitly setting it or selecting from a small list of options
  • (2019-01-27, v:1.0.0) Thomas Copper: HTTP/2 and SPDY indicator has to be updated
    Chrome 71 doesn't use chrome://net-internals/ any more, now it uses chrome://net-export, so this extension no longer compatible with latest chrome and has to be updated.
  • (2018-12-14, v:1.0.0) Tomas Rakusan: net-internals has been removed
    Chrome 71 no longer has net-internals. I think that this might be the reason why this extension no longer distinguishes between h2 and quick.
