Greenlight Wireless Corporation today announced the release of a new version of its popular Skweezer portal, which optimizes Web pages, searches, and E-Mail for use on PDA's and cell phones.

Skweezer is both a mobile-optimized browser and a fully functional Web portal, which includes an E-Mail client, contacts list, RSS reader, and other useful features. In this latest incarnation, Skweezer's compression and optimization technology has been extensively redesigned to make Web content download faster than ever. For example, a sample page from the eBay Web site has a 238 Kb file size and in testing took an average of 192 seconds to download over a standard GPRS connection. The new version of Skweezer compresses this Web page to 16 Kb and loads it over the same wireless connection in 12 seconds, 4 seconds faster than the previous version of Skweezer. This same page from eBay loads in only 3 seconds with the images tuned off in the new Skweezer.

Skweezer's user interface has also been redesigned to be more intuitive and faster to load. The Skweezer "View Modes" used in previous versions of the portal have been replaced with simpler controls that allow the user to show or hide images while browsing with Skweezer. Skweezer also has a new directory feature, which replaces the "Featured Links" section of the Skweezer Home Page and includes over 175 mobile-ready links in six regional settings. Other updates include changes to the reformatting technology that make "skweezed" pages easier to view and support for form posting in double-byte languages.

All Skweezer and Skweezer Pro users will automatically be upgraded to this latest version of the product. More information about using the new features can be found on the Skweezer User Guide, which is accessible from both the Greenlight Wireless Web site and the Skweezer portal.

Cheers ~ Arne

I've tried Skweezer before, but to me it seems like internet browsing on my X50v is just fine, especially in VGA, without it.

Funny, I feel the exact opposite the way you do: if I didn't use Skweezer, I couldn't access a majority of the websites on my LG, and I'd be paying a lot to do so.

I don't use it on my X50v, but do on my SP3i.  So I'm compromising for you guys.  Actually, I do use it on my X50v to load Paypal and eBay when I am connected through bluetooth to my SP3i.  Neither one of those will fully load, and take forever when using GPRS.  I have the T-Mobile unlimited internet plan, so file size isn't really an issue, just loading speed.  In fact, the larger the file the better.  I try to get as many MB/month as I can.  I am typically around 20MB.
