RoadReader

Get webpage contents with high-speed despite low bandwidth connection | 2/23/2014

RoadReader is an online proxy HTML-Reader with the goal of tranferring a minimal amount of data with high-speed while preserving most of the readable information. It can be used to surf the web using ultra-low bandwidth connections (e.g. bad mobile connections).

Features

  • Requested webpages are read out on the RoadReader server using an HTTP client
  • Processing
    •  HTML is cleaned from any junk & media
    • Useful information is extracted & content is reformatted (optimized for common news pages)
    • All hyperlinks are adjusted to refer back to the RoadReader server
  • The final HTTP response is compressed using gzip with respect to RFC 2616
