Accelerated Mobile Pages
The Accelerated Mobile Pages Project (AMP) is an online publishing format, created by Google as a competitor to Facebook's Instant Articles, that is similar to HTML and optimized for mobile web browsing. Using special code, AMP-HTML is intended to help webpages load rapidly when clicked in the Google search results pages, though results have varied. After a technical preview, the service was launched in February 2016.
We are committed to improving speed across the board. If our site takes a long time to load, it doesn’t matter how great our journalism is, some people will leave the page before they see what’s there.

Chris Coyier, cofounder of CodePen, writes that AMP would be better if it "was never used as search ranking factor (or anything that could be interpreted as such) by anybody" and if it "became a W3C standard," among other points.
I’m on the record as being strongly opposed to AMP simply on the grounds of publication independence. I’d stand by that even if the implementation were great. But the implementation is not great — it’s terrible. Yes, AMP pages load fast, but you don’t need AMP for fast-loading web pages. […] It’s a deliberate effort by Google to break the open web.
