WinWAP vs. Traditional HTML browser

Traditional web-services are provided in xHTML or HTML format, and mobile services (WAP) in WML or xHTML-MP (Mobile Profile). Traditional web browsers like MS Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox do not fully support the WAP specifications, so in order to have access to WAP pages you must have a WAP enabled browser. WinWAP for Windows is especially designed to provide a comfortable and user-friendly experience when browsing mobile content on your PC. There are naturally builds available for mobile phones too that the phone manufacturers (OEM's) use to provide browsing capabilities on their phones.
