Abstract: Lack of good text input mechanisms, difficulty in discovering new websites and limited reading space make consuming the web from mobile web browsers difficult. We propose an application called "Web Tuner" that aims to make web browsing on mobile devices easier. Our application is based on the metaphor of tuning into radio stations. Users are recommended new websites based on their past browsing habits, and content is presented in a summarized form. Possible monetization models include paid website insertions and advertisements.
