    Question Proxy to speed up web pages on smartphone?


    Hello,

    I just bought my first Android smartphone with Internet access and notice that a 2.0 site I use a lot is pretty slow on a 3G connection. The owners don't want to develop a smartphone application because they consider the www version fast enough.

    So I was thinking of using a proxy like Privoxy to rewrite web pages on the fly as a way to speed things up. I already do this on my PC.
    Also, since other users complain about this, I'm thinking of turning this into a small commercial application.

    What good proxy servers are available for Android and iPhone, with a way to either package the filter file into the application or fetch it from a remote www server?

    Thank you.

    I donít think there is any proxy because mainly issues with web pages are how they render by the phone; itís not about the speed. But if you get any proxy then let me know. Good luck!
