Ask.com Introduces Mobile Search Services
Skweezer technology, from Greenlight Wireless Corporation, has been integrated into the new Ask Mobile website.

Ask Mobile users who click on a search result, or any other link that leaves the site, access an optimized version of the target web page created by Skweezer. Skweezer's proprietary compression algorithms reduce web content typically to 15% or less of its original file size. This allows web pages to load much more quickly and has the added benefit of greatly reducing bandwidth requirements.

Those web pages viewed through Skweezer are also intelligently reformatted, providing intuitive and convenient access to content from a small-screen device.

Ask Mobile users can also load RSS feeds through Skweezer, allowing access to lightweight versions of syndicated content ideally suited for the mobile environment. Skweezer technology is completely platform independent and can be used with Pocket PC, Palm, Symbian, MS Smartphone, Blackberry, PSP2, and XHTML-based cell phone devices.
