I assume it means the inventory items is transferred using the HTTP protocol as opposed to what has been used up to now (I don't know which protocol has been used for this). Somewhat the same as what has been done with textures, I figure, which are now transferred (some of them anyway) by http, unless http textures are turned off.
It is supposed to be faster and more reliable than the other methods used for transfer. From what I've seen since this was introduced, http inventory works very well. Things load faster than before, and I haven't noticed anything wrong with it yet.
