W3C mobileOK Helps People Create and Find Mobile Friendly Content

14.11.2007
W3C Tool Allows Automatic Verification of mobileOK Content

W3C provides new means for people to create and find mobile friendly content. W3C invites Web authors to run the alpha release of the W3C mobileOK checker and make their content work on a broad range of mobile devices.

"Making a Web site work on a mobile device is easier once you have the right tool," explained Dominique Hazaël-Massieux, W3C's Mobile Web Initiative Activity Lead. "Now is the time to reach more people by making your site W3C mobileOK."

Tim Berners-Lee will discuss how mobileOK fits into the W3C Mobile Web vision in his Mobile Internet World keynote "Escaping the Walled Garden: Growing the Mobile Web with Open Standards" (14 November in Boston, Massachusetts, USA).

Tool Helps Authors Follow Mobile Web Best Practices

The W3C mobileOK checker runs the tests defined in the W3C mobileOK Basic Tests 1.0 Candidate Recommendation. The tests themselves are based upon W3C's Mobile Web Best Practices 1.0, published as part of W3C's Mobile Web Initiative. The Best Practices describes how to reduce the cost of authoring and to improve the mobile browsing experience. Any tool that implements the Basic Tests can verify automatically whether content is mobile friendly.

The W3C mobileOK checker is the latest addition to W3C's popular and successful suite of validation services. As an integral part of the W3C standardization process, W3C invites mobile Web experts and the community at large to review the checker and the mobileOK Basic Tests.

W3C mobileOK Content Easier to Find in Search Engines

With Web sites which conform to the W3C mobileOK content guidelines, search engines can better tailor results for a mobile environment, benefitting authors and their audience alike. Sean Owen of Google will be talking about how he and other Working Group members developed the checker with search engines in mind at the Mobile Web Standards Seminar, on 13 November at Mobile Internet World.

Im Focus: Quantum simulation more stable than expected

A localization phenomenon boosts the accuracy of solving quantum many-body problems with quantum computers which are otherwise challenging for conventional computers. This brings such digital quantum simulation within reach on quantum devices available today.

Quantum computers promise to solve certain computational problems exponentially faster than any classical machine. “A particularly promising application is the...

Im Focus: Largest, fastest array of microscopic 'traffic cops' for optical communications

The technology could revolutionize how information travels through data centers and artificial intelligence networks

Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley have built a new photonic switch that can control the direction of light passing through optical fibers...

Im Focus: A long-distance relationship in femtoseconds

Physicists observe how electron-hole pairs drift apart at ultrafast speed, but still remain strongly bound.

Modern electronics relies on ultrafast charge motion on ever shorter length scales. Physicists from Regensburg and Gothenburg have now succeeded in resolving a...

Im Focus: Researchers 3D print metamaterials with novel optical properties

Engineers create novel optical devices, including a moth eye-inspired omnidirectional microwave antenna
