Internet Explorer is /not/ the Internet. If you want to use a good browser
for an analogy, Firefox would be a better example.

But anyway...

You have several issues when surfing on the PDA:

-Pages that are poorly built, e.g.:

        o Include and depend on JavaScript and its nasty siblings (1)

        o Require a large display

        o Deny, by principle, access to certain browsers

        o Too heavy due to unoptimised content (2)


        o Related especially to point (2)


        o Related to (1) and (2)

If you stick to sites like google.X and follow through to pages that are
said to be small in size (results have the target size in kilobytes
adjacent to them in the SERP), you will be okay. Don't stick to sites that
fail to understand the Web as they will only lead you to frustration.
