Bangalore, Jul 29: The web-search giant Google has announced the launch of a new service called 'Page Speed Service' - an online service that automatically speeds up loading of users' web pages.

Google engineers said that the new service Page Speed Service will improve the loading time by 25 percent to 60 percent.

"To use the service, you (webmasters) need to sign up and point the site's DNS entry to Google," said Ram Ramani, an Engineering Manager on the 'Make the Web Faster Team' in Bangalore.

"Page Speed fetches content from your servers, rewrites your pages by applying web performance best practices, and serves them to end users via Google's servers across the globe. Your users will continue to access your site just as they did before, only with faster load times."

Google said that with the new service, users don"t have to worry about concatenating CSS, compressing images, caching, gzipping resources or other web performance best practices.

Initially, Page Speed Service is being offered to a limited set of website owners at no charge. However, it will be a fee-based service when it's made widely available later this year.
