Google Wireless Transcoder aka Google Proxy

I stumbled onto this article about Google Wireless Transcoder. It is a service which strips a webpage of its styles (i.e formatting, css, etc) and serves it onto the browser just as plain Text and Images. It has a simple to use user-interface (UI) with a text box to enter the url and a ‘Go’ button. There is also an option to display images or hide them (just showing the text)

I found it very useful because of the problems that i face with my Sify ISP! The GWT is really fast and the page loads in seconds! Hope this article helps others who are stuck with a very low bandwidth internet connection.

But i think GWT will surely come handy while browsing through GPRS on a Mobile  or even iPhone too 🙂

Try out my blog on GWT and feel the difference

The best part is, the css divisions in a page like the main content area and sidebar are both distinguished and shown separately on the GWT. This feature is awesome !
