Fast Flip is a Google Labs project that definitely a new reading experience that combines the best elements of print and online articles. Items on Fast Flip are displayed as images. So, the pages loads quickly and users can quickly look through a lot of pages to find something interesting.

Last September, Google started Fast Flip with three dozen top publishers, including the New York Times, the Atlantic, the Washington Post, Salon, Fast Company, ProPublica and Newsweek. Then in December, more than 50 other newspapers, magazines, news wires and TV and radio broadcasters were added to Fast Flip. Now, the total number of news sources discoverable in Google Fast Flip increases to more than 90.
