The W3C has announced the Mobile Web Initiative with the goal of
“Making Web access from a mobile device as simple, easy and convenient as Web access from a desktop device”
Initial work will be focused on developing “best practices” for “mobileOK” Web sites, work on device information needed for content adaptation, and marketing and outreach activities. This will be carried out in two working groups:
- The Mobile Web Best Practice Working Group will develop a set of technical best practices and associated materials in support of development of Web sites that provide an appropriate user experience on mobile devices (see mailing list).
- The Device Description Working Group will address the development of globally accessible, sustainable data and services that provide device descriptions in support of Web-enabled applications having an appropriate user experience on mobile devices (see mailing list).
