Many times our cellular data connection’s speed is quite slow be it 2G or 3G , which hampers the loading speed or even simple loading of a website on our mobile devices. Some websites even have some type of ads, which don’t let users view content without clicking on “Skip ad” and some even fail to show the content despite clicking on the ad(e.g mobile.ndtv.com) , or many websites simply put too many images affecting the loading time on our cellphones. All of these combined simply hampers our browsing and reading experience, but not any more – Google light web, or google lite search as its called helps overcome these problems by simply parsing a website’s pages in a mobile-friendly readable format.
If you’re a webmaster you might have come across traffic from sources such as icl.googleusercontent.com , or googleweblight.com . These are nothing but search traffic with your website optimized for mobile viewing by Google, and you can use the above google URLs to even transcode any other website traffic on your slow/data intensive cellular network to save extra data costs and reduce loading time.
Method to use GoogleWebLight.com and icl.googleusercontent.com to view optimised websites –

What is their address? Is it googleweblight.net ?

Great. but some websites like facebook cannot be loaded using this.
Google web light loads content fast but I have seen many sites css and layout broken.However its very helpful for slow internet speed.
