Is it possible to communicate with an electrum server using http? I'm interested in building a browser extension.

I also see this message on the electrum chrome plugin

Unfortunately, all public Electrum servers have upgraded to a version of the protocol this extension does not support

No, new nodes don't support the HTTP transport. You'll need to use TCP.
