“If the mobile Web is to live, someone has to build it some better lodgings,” Pando Daily’s Hamish McKenzie laments in a post titled, “Why do mobile browsers suck so bad?

Today’s mobile browsers are “boring adaptation(s) of the desktop experience ported to a smaller screen,” McKenzie complains, and “don’t even come close to satisfactory.”

China’s UCWeb is rethinking the mobile browser, incorporating some clever ideas in its UCBrowser, like stacking open Web pages as rectangles. Another “intriguing player” is Wildcard, a startup that looks to be building a library of HTML5 cards to provide browsing that’s more “app-like,” McKenzie says. Source: pando.com.
