The Anatomy of a Web Application

Abstract

It has been some time now that mobile phones can browse the Internet. Back when Internet access on mobiles devices started, it was nothing like what we know now. Networks had drastically limited speeds and were extremely expensive, screen sizes were small, and devices usually only did black and white. You could read only a few short lines at a time, with a thumbnail-size image if you were lucky. Back then, a web page couldn’t go beyond a bunch of kilobytes, partly because of device memories, and users had the chore of navigating mostly with the 0-9 phone keys. Obviously, even if this was some kind of technical revolution, browsing the Internet on their phones wasn’t very attractive to end users.
