"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."

    Just as a point of discussion, slashcode already has bandwidth saving options baked in.

    **N.B. Before following the below suggestion bookmark this link: [] you'll need it to get back out of the matrix :)

    Browse on over to your Homepage [] and check "Simple Design", "Low Bandwidth" and "No Icons". Et voila, a lot less cluttered and (opinion) cleaner look. Although you do lose some functionality as a trade off.

    Maybe that could be used as the basis for a "mobile.soylent" incarnation if the need is there?
