2. Google WebLight services as Proxy server:

What is Google WebLight service?

Google WebLight services can also be used as a proxy server. This service is used by Google to render heavy websites on a slow connection. It means that Google WebLight optimizes a website up to 80% and delivers the website in a mobile site format.

If you want to use Google WebLight as a proxy server, then replace ‘Fossbytes’ with the site of your choice. Then paste that in a web browser’s address bar and press enter.
