The mobile environment sets new requirements for contents, browsers, and visualization. The capabilities and properties of mobile devices as well as networks vary a lot. As well as the browsing content, also, mobile browsers should be adaptable for specific users, use-contexts, and services to provide reasonable user experience. Because mobile usage is more spontaneous browsers need to be fast to download, install, and start. We describe a MIMEFrame framework that defines core parts for mobile user agents and browsers and presents how adaptation tasks can dynamically compose browsers of the MIMEFrame components. In addition, we introduce a SKINS model that offers fine-grained methods for composing context- and content-driven presentations for (e.g. XML) contents and user interfaces described with element trees. We made Java implementations for these techniques that offer both core interfaces and a platform for adaptable mobile user agent and browser implementations that can illustrate various types of content and offer multimodal controls for browsing.
