QUIC

An experimental protocol developed by Google to speed up latency-sensitive applications such as Web search. A prime goal is that connections can be established more quickly than with TCP ("zero RTT connection establishment"). The protocol is layered on top of UDP for deployability. According to a Chromium Blog article from April 2015, "roughly half of all requests from Chrome to Google servers are served over QUIC".
