Hot on the heels of their ZenZui “zooming tile” browser for mobile phones, Microsoft Live Labs just announced the limited-public beta version of their new Deep Fish Mobile Browser. The new mobile browser aims to put a stop to horribly-inaccurate mobile renderings of webpages and brings a desktop browsing experience to your Windows Mobile-based phone.
Deepfish preserves the image of the webpage for accurate display on a mobile device, and allows you to zoom in on interesting parts of the webpage. The unique architecture of Deepfish reduces bandwidth use to speed up load times by displaying only the “user-specified portion of the page, providing much quicker page-load times, as detailed information is only retrieved as needed or in the background.”
Currently available as a first-come-first-serve beta, the software is available for limited download. Both Smartphone and PocketPC versions of Windows Mobile are supported.
