The Internet is a global gathering space of infinite opportunity, where people from around the world can exchange ideas and access humanity’s knowledge. Everyone should have equal access to the internet’s information to improve their everyday lives, regardless of who they are or where they live.
Increasingly, users in India are accessing the internet through mobile devices such as their smartphones. However, not all of these devices come with fast, cheap connections. Today, Google is launching a new streamlined version of its search results page in India to help.
Now, we will automatically check to see if a user has a slow wireless connection and deliver a fast loading version of Search. Fewer bytes means you get your answer faster - and cheaper! Google's high quality results will remain the same, but elements such as images and maps will only show up when they are an essential part of the result.
This is just another step Google is taking to organize the world’s information and make it accessible to everyone, including those who do not have fast mobile connections.
