Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) vs...

"AMP is a way to build web pages for static content that render fast. AMP in action consists of three different parts:
AMP HTML is HTML with some restrictions for reliable performance and some extensions for building rich content beyond basic HTML. The AMP JS library ensures the fast rendering of AMP HTML pages. The AMP CDN (optionally) delivers the AMP HTML pages."

The driving idea behind AMP is to cut the loading time for web pages to a duration users will tolerate."
