Microsoft unveiled Mobile Browser Deepfish

March 30th, 2007

Microsoft Research has released “Deepfish” a prototype browser for Windows Mobile 5+ phones that users can sign up for and try out.

What is Deepfish?
Deepfish is a lightweight client application that leverages a powerful server side technology for delivery of content such as web pages to a Windows Mobile device. Content is displayed in a familiar desktop format that requires no additional work by the content or site author.

Deepfish provides:

* A familiar look and feel of web pages on mobile as seen on desktop.
* Bandwidth optimized rendering for faster content delivery.
* Address bar web navigation.
* Intuitive zooming, panning and cue map for quick navigation and browsing.
* Support for simple link navigation and form submission.

Current Limitations

As a technology preview, Deepfish is early in its development cycle (still a few releases from beta quality). As a result some features are not implemented or are only partially implemented. Currently, the technology preview does not support ActiveX controls, AJAX, cookies, Javascript, and HTTP POST.
