Abstract

This document specifies a new HTTP/2 frame type and new HTTP/2 settings values that would enable the use of previously transferred data as compression dictionaries, significantly improving overall compression ratio for a given connection. In addition, this document proposes to define a set of industry standard, static, dictionaries to be used with any Lempel-Ziv based compression for the common textual MIME types prevalent on the web.
