Google - [Our] TCP Can Do 12% Better

According to Google's Urs Holzle (during his keynote presentation at the Velocity 2010 conference yesterday):

".. Google has seen a 12% improvement in the performance of its sites through refinements in its implementation of TCP/IP."

See "Google: How We’re Making the Web Faster" - here.

See a paper from Google "An Argument for Increasing TCP’s Initial Congestion Window" - here. The paper concludes:  "Increasing TCP’s initial congestion window is a small change with a significant positive impact on Web transfer latency"

Google work is not limited to TCP - DNS and HTTP improvements ("SPDY") also contribute to a faster web service.
