AFAIK, WebRTC intends to setup P2P communication between browsers, then
carry video/audio/text media, etc.

Why we need WebRTC? Firstly, Web is the most popular network app, secondly,
video/voice brings the best user experience.
But, the problem is that HTTP runs on TCP by now, while P2P runs on UDP

Suppose both web browser and server can run HTTP upon UDP(the protocol
schema as HTTPP), what happens?
Firstly, Web app developers can program HTTPP like HTTP, secondly, P2P
traffic can be carried on HTTPP easily.

Basically iWebPP consists of two parts: HTTPP-enabled web browser and web

Any thoughts? thanks.

Best regards
