Google has launched a new web browser which is both faster and more affordable that will only be available to users via Google App, Chrome or Android browser.
Known as WebLite, the new browser will make it possible for web users with low Random-Access Memory – RAM (storage space for running application programmes) devices get search results faster.
“The new development is aimed at improving the search experience for millions of people where network connections are slow and access to devices is limited,” said Google Kenya Country Manager Charles Murito.
He said following the new development, users will now spend less on bundles and save more on time. The feature is available for internet users in Kenya and more than 50 other countries across the world.
He said nearly 40 per cent of people in Africa use low RAM android devices that have slow or delayed web connections. WebLite improves the mobile search experience by transcoding mobile search pages into lighter pages that are easier to load.
