Mobile Web

The Mobile Web refers to the access to wireless data services using a mobile device such as cell phones, PDAs, and other portable are connected to a mobile telecoms network. The service can be to the traditional WWW (World Wide Web) or to any one of more limited service platforms such as WAP (Wireless Application Protocol), i-Mode and Blackberry services.

While many think that mobile web or mobile Internet means access to the traditional Internet using a mobile phone or device. The access to the traditional Internet, but it can be to less than the Internet, as typically is with WAP services, or it can be to more than the Internet, the data services that do not even exist on the traditional Internet, such as SMS text messaging and ring tones. The mobile web is similar to, but not identical to the traditional Internet and WWW.

However, Mobile Web access today still suffers some usability problems. This is in part due to the small physical size of the screens of the mobile devices and in part due to the incompatibility of many mobile devices with not only computer operating systems, but also the format of much of the information available on the Internet.

What is HTTP and HTTPS?

HTTP stands for Hyper Text Transport Protocol, which is mostly used for transferring information back and forth between web servers and clients. HTTPS stands for Hyper Text Transport Protocol Secure. It transfers the data between web servers and clients in a more secure Way.

If you visit a website or webpage, and take a look at the address in the web browser, it will probably start with the following: http://. This means that the website is communicating to your browser using an ‘unsecure’ language. In other words, it is possible for an unknown person to “eavesdrop” on your computer’s conversation with the website. If you fill out a form on the website, someone might see the information you send to that site.

But if the web address commence with https://, which basically means your computer is conversing to the website in a secure code that no one can eavesdrop on.

This is why you never enter your credit card number in a HTTP website!

If a website whenever requests you to enter your credit card details, you should involuntarily look to observe if the web address begins with https://. If it doesn’t, there’s no way you’re going to enter sensitive information like a credit card number!
