Please see Networking/IndividualPriorities for individual team member priorities.
At a high level, our team's top priorities right now are 1) improving Necko/Gecko performance and 2) supporting FirefoxOS.
This list is meant to keep track of work we'd like to get done as a team, in prioritized order.
- Continue to develop Stone Ridge's performance testing capabilities.
- Design and implement new HTTP disk cache.
- 658222: TLS False Start for SPDY
- Resolve NSS race conditions leading to instability and security issues.
- 436414: OCSP client should be able to use HTTP GET as well as POST, results should be cached
- 791750: Make it possible to deliver stream data off the main thread
- SPDY/HTTP2 work, e.g. reimplement spdy upstream compression (785279) and experiment with SPDY server push (790388)
- 700698: Enable OCSP stapling by default
- 746073, 746074: Meter network usage per "web app", enforce policies
- 421128: Independent windows/tabs should not starve each other for network connections
- 733647: Ship TLS 1.1 (RFC 4346) in Firefox, on by default
