Survey on mobile web browsing


New member
Mobile web browsing (MWB) can very well be termed as the confluence of two major revolutions: mobile (smartphone) and internet revolution. Mobile web traffic has now surpassed the desktop web traffic and has become the primary means for service providers to reach-out to the billions of end-users. Due to this trend, optimization of MWB has gained significant attention.

We survey ~100 papers on techniques for improving efficiency of MWB. We review the techniques from both networking domain (e.g., proxy and browser enhancements) and processor-architecture domain (e.g., hardware customization, thread-to-core scheduling).

Paper accepted in Concurrency and Computation, available here.
