As most Websites are designed for desktop PCs, it is extremely uncomfortable to browse these large pages on a wireless handheld device with small screen and limited user interface. So it is necessary to adapt these web pages to small screen devices. Besides, as the limited computing ability and capacity of storage of wireless handheld devices, it is also extremely challenging to deploy existing Web page adaptation engine. By referring to huge computing ability and storage resource of cloud computing infrastructure, a new wireless web access mode is proposed. Firstly, the system framework is present. Subsequently, the two key components of system are described in detail: the one is distributed Web page adaptation engine, which is designed for the purpose that the engine can be carried by computing cloud distributed and parallel; the other is distributed Web page blocks management based on cloud computing, which is proposed so that the Web page adaptation engine can be deployed reasonably. Moreover, a prototype system and a set of evaluation experiments have been implemented.
