    Anand Chandrasekaran, Chief Product Officer, Snapdeal tweeted about the new mobile website

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet blockquote" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Is there a <a href="https://t.co/Ed8cS7dJ8g">https://t.co/Ed8cS7dJ8g</a> experience that's 85% faster? Introducing Snap-lite (across all mobile browsers). <a href="https://t.co/dWtZkFniWw">pic.twitter.com/dWtZkFniWw</a></p>— Anand Chandrasekaran (@anandc) <a href="https://twitter.com/anandc/status/664833643215392769">November 12, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

    While both, Flipkart Lite and Snapdeal Snap-Lite are mobile websites, the Snapdeal Snap-Lite is optimized for slower connections.

    Snapdeal's Lite version however doesn't seem to have the app-like features of Flipkart Lite - such as the ability to add a short cut on the home screen, push notifications, and offline functionality.

    Flipkart and Snapdeal have a history of countering each other and have done so in the past by launching similar schemes one after another.
