What network apps are resilient to bad latency? What network apps aren't?
Posted on 2014-08-20
Are there apps that utilize the internet that are especially resilient to bad network latency? I'd hazard a guess that bad-latency resilience is a function of the application (ex. Chrome or Safari) as opposed to the protocol (ex. HTTP), but I could be completely wrong.
Conversely, are there apps that utilize the internet that are especially vulnerable to bad network latency? For example, I've heard that some flavors of VPN simply croak when network latency goes up. (Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.)
