TeaShark is a java browser 145K in size. It runs on almost all Java enabled phones. Good mobile browser but still in beta. I have installed it on my N95. Very good browsing speed. You can also rotate screen to landscape. You can download it from www.teashark.com
Teashark is a mobile web browser for Java MIDP 2.0. The browser first renders the pages and other data on Teashark servers and then the servers send the data to mobile devices, like the other handheld browsers these days. This way of data transfer saves a lot of time and data usage of your network, but how?
Suppose, there is no servers in between. You open www.thegeekdaily.com on your mobile device, and it starts loading. What actually happens is, you mobile sends packets to TheGeekDaily servers and it sends data back. But in this case, the servers are not optimized to send compressed or less data to mobile devices. Therefore, they will send the same amount of data to all devices, whether it’s a PC on high-speed internet or a java based mobile with GPRS connectivity.
On the other hand, when you open a page in Teashark browser, it makes sure your mobile handle only the ‘required’ amount of data. Again, suppose you open www.thegeekdaily.com. This time, the page will open on Teashark servers and the servers will then compress the page data to send it to your device. Only the minimum required amount of packets will be sent to your phone, and hence you will save time, money and improve browsing speed.
