Paper Abstract

We present hp2.me, a URL shortener service for improving the mobile web consumption experience. Unlike other such services, given a short URL, hp2.me returns an image rendered from the salient regions of a web page. This approach to displaying web content improves mobile web reading experience through reduced latency and improved clarity. It is faster to load a few large image files over a cellular data network than many small files, and limited mobile screen real estate can be better utilized to display relevant content. The hp2.me service is currently in external beta, and we present results to illustrate the advantages of this technique.
