HTTP is one crucial element of nowadays Internet, almost to the point of being nowadays that “thin waits” that used to be identified with the IP protocol not so long ago. Yet HTTP is changing, with recent proposals such as SPDY, HTTP2 and QUIC, that aims at addressing some of the long-standing shortcoming of the HTTP/1 protocol family. In this talk, we will be exposing ongoing work to assess the impact that HTTP evolution is expected to have on the quality of user experience (QoE), based on experiments where we collect feedback (i.e., Mean Opinion Scores) from a panel of users on real webpages, as well as define and automatically collect QoE metrics on the same experiments.
