A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11962665B2) discloses a method implemented in a server for optimizing mobile web browsing experience. The method involves receiving a request for a document from a mobile client device, determining if the requested document is an optimized mobile version, and redirecting the client to the optimized version if necessary. By analyzing the structure of the HTML and identifying specific tags, the server can efficiently direct users to the most suitable version of the document, enhancing the mobile browsing experience. Additionally, the method includes provisions for handling requests from non-mobile devices, ensuring that the appropriate document is delivered based on the client device type.

Furthermore, the patent also covers a non-transitory machine-readable storage medium containing instructions for executing the aforementioned method on a server. This medium enables the processor to perform operations such as identifying mobile client devices, accessing information about optimized mobile versions, and redirecting users accordingly. The patent also extends to a server equipped with a processor and storage medium to carry out the described operations efficiently. By leveraging this technology, servers can streamline the delivery of content to mobile users, ensuring an optimized browsing experience tailored to their devices while also catering to non-mobile clients effectively.
