WAP Browser

A wireless access protocol (WAP) browser is a miniature version of a web browser used for mobile devices to connect to the internet. This microbrowser can use different protocols to view web content as plain text or simplified pages. These protocols are commonly set up to detect a user’s device type and automatically provide the best display option.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About WAP Browser

An SMB with a vital internet presence must ensure that their website and web apps are suitable for mobile devices. Web developers and web designers can create separate web pages optimized for microbrowsers. When a company’s website isn’t optimized, the pages often load slower and may not display correctly on a mobile phone.
