HTTP-NG(HyperText Transport Protocol-Next Generation) An enhanced version of the HTTP protocol that was developed to meet the increasing performance demands of the 21st century. Explored in a working group of the IETF between 1997 and 1999, it was thought that HTTP-NG would succeed HTTP 1.1 as a more streamlined, layered protocol. Although several proposals were submitted and reviewed, nothing came to fruition. See HTML5.
