Google seems to paying more attention to rapidly growing Indian Internet market as they announced that they are rolling out a streamlined version of its search results page in India. India is a market with tons of Mobile Internet users who have slow connections. Google aiming to strengthen its foothold in the Indian mobile Internet market will enable faster search capability for mobile phone users with slower network connections using a new streamlined version of its search results page.
Google will automatically check if a user has slow wireless connection and deliver a fast loading version of search to the user. Fewer Bytes are loaded that means you have faster answer to your searches and it will be cheaper also.

“Increasingly, people in India are accessing the Internet through mobile devices such as their smartphones. However, not all of these devices come with fast, cheap connections,” Google’s distinguished software engineer Bharat Mediratta added.
This is a great step by Google in order to organize the world’s information and making it accessible to everyone, including those who don’t have fast Internet connections.
Google is certainly paying extra attention top Indian market as their recent launches also made it clear.
