Pocket Internet Explorer Overview

The Pocket Internet Explorer feature for Microsoft® Windows® CE .NET provides an compact Internet browser that is optimized for devices with small, vertically oriented displays and for cached or customized content. HTML functionality is equivalent to that of Microsoft Internet Explorer version 3.2, with support for tables, forms, and frames. A fit-to-screen option dynamically resizes Web pages to maximize viewing on hand-held devices without requiring the user to scroll across a page. A Zoom menu option allows the user to view text on the screen in different sizes.
