Google service rewrites Web pages for speed

Page Speed Service also serves up the optimized pages from Google servers

Google has developed a hosted service that analyzes Web pages, rewrites their code to make them perform better and serves them up from Google servers.

To use the Page Speed Service, Web publishers must sign up and point their site's DNS entry to Google. The service grabs the site's content, optimizes it for speed and delivers the pages to end users.

Visitors will continue to access a site in the same way as before but could see speed enhancements of 25 percent to 60 percent, according to Google.

The service is currently being offered free to a limited number of hand-selected webmasters. Google will announce pricing and other details later. Webmasters can sign up to receive information.

Google has many products and initiatives designed to help speed up the rendering of Web pages, both its own and those of other websites.

It believes a faster online experience is better for everyone, including Google, which has found in tests over the years that even small improvements in Web page performance can lead to significantly greater usage.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
