Google is working hard to make its sites available even to people on low bandwidth. Last they worked upon gmail & now its time for orkut.
They have reworked on the code so that if the pages are taking time to load, user will get a prompt to switch over to low-bandwidth version of the same.
Good to see the initiative, at times I’m sitting idle at airport on low speed data card connections. Thats the best time to contact friends on orkut and now it will be more easier 🙂
