Wireless application protocol(WAP) enabled mobile users to enjoy much valuable information and a large number of commercial services over mobile networks. The significance of WAP browsing, which has been a service dedicated to mobile phones, is rising as devices get smarter and networks become faster. A WAP browser would be equally practical on PC's and hand-held devices. This paper presents our research experience on the development of a mobile browser that supports WAP as well as Web. We developed a browser that can browse WAP 1.x, WAP 2.0, and XHTML. Our approach was to design and implement a WAP-to-Web transcoding system that could be added to an existing web browser. We named the new browser MiniWap. It is capable of browsing both WAP and Web. To verify its functionality, we tested it with a set of test cases and found that its performance was acceptable.
