Title: Method, browser client and apparatus to support full-page web browsing on hand-held devices

Abstract: Method, browser client, and apparatus for enabling users of hand-held devices to perform full page browsing of Web pages with zooming and panning. A proxy or proxy server is used to process HTML-based Web content corresponding to requested Web pages in their original form and generate translated content that is configured to be processed by a browser client running on hand-held devices to support full page browsing of the Web pages with zooming and panning support while preserving the original page layout and design of the Web pages. Thus, users are enabled to use their hand-held devices to browse their favorite Web pages in a similar manner to which they are accustomed when using their desktop browser. Moreover, since the original form of the HTML-based Web content is employed, hand-held device users are enabled to browse from among billions of Web pages available via the Internet.
