Google has introduced new Lite pages for its web browser Chrome that would load pages faster and work better with Android’s data saver feature.

“To show users when a page has been optimised, Chrome now shows in the URL bar that a Lite version of the page is being displayed,” the company wrote in a blog post on Tuesday.

Chrome automatically disables Lite pages on a per-site or per-user basis when it detects that users frequently opt to load the original page.

“We use built-in optimisations and Google servers to improve page loading. These optimisations are only applied when the network’s effective connection type is ‘2G’ or ‘slow-2G’ or when Chrome estimates the page load will take more than five seconds,” the post said.

Google has revamped Search with a redesign that would help mobile users better understand which information is coming from where and what are they looking for.

“The name of the website and its icon appear at the top of the result card to help anchor each result so you can more easily scan the page of results and decide what to explore next,” Jamie Leach, Senior Interaction Designer, Search, Google wrote in blog-post on Wednesday.

Now when users search for a product or service and Google displays an important advertisement, a highlighted ad label would show on top of the card alongside the web address.

“This new design allows us to add more action buttons and helpful previews to search result cards, all while giving you a better sense of the web page’s content with clear attribution back to the source,” Leach said.
