Skweezer 4 makes mobile browsing faster
Posted on 19-Jun-2007 13:09 | Tags Filed under: News



Greenlight Wireless has released Skweezer 4.0, the latest incarnation of its free service that optimises desktop Web content for mobile devices, such as cell phones and PDAs.

The service compresses and reformats content being downloaded, so that it loads faster, looks better, and is easier to navigate on a mobile device.

Skweezer has been updated from top to bottom with a redesigned user interface that helps reducing keystrokes and take advantage of "hot key" navigation that utilizes a phone's keypad when used in WAP-enabled phones.

The service will now also use a new search system to provide relevant Web searches across multiple mobile device platforms. Skweezer's code-base and hosting infrastructure have been updated to provide the fastest Skweezer ever.

Skweezer includes a "find in page" feature that allows a user to quickly jump to specific content within a Web page. For example, a search on www.skweezer.net for the keywords "Starbucks" and "London" will yield a page containing several search results. When the user clicks on a result, a link will appear at the top of the destination Web page that allows the user to search for "Starbucks" and "London" within that page. This feature is especially useful with limited-capacity cell phones, as it allows a user to jump straight to targeted information even if the content has been split into sub-pages for use on the device.

The platform's new image optimization technology dynamically recalibrates images for use on specific mobile devices by altering resolution, color-depth, and image dimensions. Skweezer users who browse with the "Show Images" feature on will find that the data footprint of the average Web page is now reduced, which greatly accelerates page-loading speeds.
