Use of RSS Feeds for Content Adaptation in Mobile Web Browsing


In W4A: Proceedings of the 2006 International Cross-disciplinary Workshop on Web Accessibility (W4A) (2006), pp. 79-85, doi:10.1145/1133219.1133233

While mobile phones are becoming more popular, wireless communication vendors and device manufacturers are seeking new applications for their products. Access to the large corpus of Internet information is a very prominent field, however the technical limitations of mobile devices pose many challenges. Browsing the Internet using a mobile phone is a large scientific and cultural challenge. Web content must be adapted before it can be accessed by a mobile browser. In this work we build on the proxy server solution to present a new technique that uses Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds for the adaptation of web content for use in mobile phones. This technique is based in concrete design guidelines and supports different viewing modes. Experimentation shows a significant decrease in the transformed content of about 80% in size facilitating cost-effective web browsing.
