curl's HTTP/2 support is summarized here:

But put simply: the command line tool still does its requests serially, one
after the other, so it can't really take full advantage of all the cool
features of HTTP/2 (like multiplexing) - although it speaks it perfectly fine.

libcurl can do multiplexing and basicaly any amount of parallel transfers.

In the long term I'd like to make the command line tool move over to use the
multi interface and allow simultaneous parallel transfers
( for all
and any protocol version. That would seriously enhance curl's HTTP/2 powers.

Anyone interested in working on this?
