Aidworld is developing lightweight software to take the world wide web world wide. The Aidbase software works by stripping out graphics and simplifying the format of web pages, leaving just the lightweight text. It is designed for use on internet connections running either over satellite telephones, where connection costs are ruinously high, or poor-quality landlines, where the connection may break at any moment. Aidbase automatically optimises the performance of the connection, accessing information on the internet up to 35 times faster than a standard browser. [Via: BBC]
