This chapter introduces the technical challenges arising from supporting web browsing on smartphones. For ease of understanding and further discussions, we briefly describe existing techniques on reducing the access delay and power consumption of smartphones. Then, we propose a new architecture, called Virtual Machine-based Proxy (VMP), which aims to shift the computationally intensive web browsing tasks from smartphones to reduce the delays and power consumption. Finally, we highlight the advantages of the VMP architecture and provide detailed organization of the book.
