"Avantslash is touting a user hosted perl script that, if paired with any web browser with JavaScript, promises to shave crucial bytes off of the standard Slash-based experience, one of which is our very own SoylentNews. Audiences include those with very limited bandwidth, such as those in developing countries with only 2G mobile access or dialup."

    What's the point you ask? During my daily train commute, I pass through an area with patchy 2G coverage, with just a few kB/s transfer rate. At work (it's on a "high tech campus", well, well) it depends on which side of the building I am in.

    And the layout is more suitable for mobile rendering. Although for SN the layout is manageable on modern mobile devices, you should remember that it was really written for slashdot, with SN support as a new feature.
