Networking

(Redirected from Necko)
Jump to: navigation, search

The Necko (or Networking) team is responsible for the fundamental network protocols and features like HTTP, QUIC, caching, and DNS. Most of our documentation resides on the firefox-source-docs/networking section, and our focus is to make it an accessible and easy-to-browse source of truth for our networking stack. This page serves as an extension to guide through the documentation and as a place to draft pages not yet ready to be in firefox-source-docs, but already useful on their own. At some point, all pages about networking in the wiki are intended to be lifted to firefox-source-docs.

Getting started
