A large number of technologies and practices have attempted to tackle real-time demands to constantly update the browser. The new HTML5 WebSocket protocol promises bi-directional communication between the server and the client through a single TCP connection that removes a great load of header information and reduces latency. At the end of this course, you will be fully aware of the technologies needed to build real-time web applications and why HTML5 WebSockets offer us the opportunity to create unique web apps and enhance browser capabilities we had never had the chance to lay our hands on before.
