I now want to start implementing some software that should work with the flow of browser-server. I want to understand, now a RFC-6455
. Wikipedia is conflicting information. In the Russian article says that the support is enabled by default only in Chrome; Firefox and Opera by default turned off support for websockets due to security issues. The English wiki says that Firefox has disabled support for websockets in 4-5, which is indirectly confirmed by test Firefox 10 on page WebsocketsTest.com
Of course there are workarounds like Socket.IO and Sock.js but these things are like crutches [please, no gamers]
. If support for websockets will be enabled in the near future, I do not see sense to implement the Protocol of choice of transport. If there's no other way, you have yet to work with one of these technologies.
If you don't know the answer to the subject will be asked just go to the link (WebsocketsTest.com
) and indicate your browser, its version, and testID (see bottom of the page after passing the test). Thanks in advance for your help.
