Firefox SPDY alternate-protocol

Firefox does not support the alternate-protocol header part of SPDY. I’m not 100% confident of this, but from scanning this and reading this, that’s my understanding.

I couldn’t find a definitive answer to this question, so I’m posting this in the hope of saving others the search time. If you have information to the contrary, or if the situation changes, please let me know in the comments and I’ll update this post.

This raises the question, how do we deploy SPDY for Firefox users? Do we redirect all traffic to SSL anyway? Redirect only Firefox browsers that we think support SPDY? Only use SPDY for Chrome users? I’ll post more once we make a decision…
