Microsoft Demonstrates its Own Mobile Browsing Technology

You might think I'm writing the same story twice, as Microsoft this week talked about new technology to improve the browsing capabilities of mobile devices. Instead of ZenZui, Microsoft was extolling the virtues of Deepfish, a technology that makes cell phone and PDA browsers look more like their larger PC or laptop brethren.

Deepfish offers the full layout of the Web site, but in a way that lets users easily read the content.

No, it's not a giant magnifying glass. Instead, Deepfish loads the portion of the Web site you are actually exploring. And best of all, DeepFish can work with existing pages without having them recrafted for mobile.
