In the era of social networks, always-on connectivity and remote communication, the tools we use to work and play with rely heavily on the World Wide Web protocols. The Web is no more a collection of static sites and download-only content, but rather it is a place where real-time collaboration happens. In this "new Web", called the Real-Time Web, a small latency between the browser and the Web server is a critical element. How does the Real-Time Web perform over a satellite link? What should application developers choose to build interactive applications over a satellite link, given the broad range of available protocols and techniques? To answer these urgent questions this article will compare the latency shown by some of the most significant new Web solutions in the presence and in the ansence of a GEO satellite link.
