Web Content Adaptation for Mobile Devices: A Greedy Approach
Mobile internet browsing usually involves a lot of horizontal and vertical scrolling, which makes web browsing time-consuming. In addition to this, users may be interested in a section of a web page, which may not fit into the mobile screen. This requires more scrolling in both directions. In this paper, the authors propose to address this problem by re-arranging the geometric sequence of the blocks from a large web page while maintaining their semantics. Their proposed system, Web-adaptor, reduces unnecessary information by allowing its users to see the most relevant blocks of the page and provides the target contents. The Web-adaptor assigns profit to each object of the web page according to the user preferences.
