In order to surf the web, you need a web browser. The browser functions as a bridge–whenever you type in www.roblox.com (or any URL for that matter), or click on any link or picture, your browser is making something called an HTTP Request, then displaying the results of that request on your screen. As you can no doubt imagine, there are billions of these requests made daily, as a huge volume of people browse the web, download music, play ROBLOX, and read emails from all sorts of devices. It is the single most widely used communication protocol of the modern web.
Starting today, we’re allowing developers to make these very same requests from their ROBLOX game servers.
