Different better

Example

"Sctp is not better than tcp in any way but it does something different"

How SCTP is better then TCP ? (in traffic scenario)

Others

Example

Sctp requires more design within the application to get the best use of it;there are more options than tcp the sockets-like api came later and it is young

from question  

Why is SCTP not much used/known

As i understand websockets are on top of tcp and have higher latency than sctp that underlies webrtc when for example sending binary data between server and browser that also could be 2 peers in webrtc

from question  

Is RTCDataChannel when configuration reliable = true faster then Websockets?
