Offline Previews

When users are on slow connections, Chrome will show an offline copy of a page if there is an offline version of the page available on the user’s device. Users will see a message at the bottom of their screens that allows them to load the original page. If Chrome determines the network has 2G speeds and there's an offline page stored, Chrome shows the offline page. Chrome’s offline pages are based on MHTML snapshots.
