You can see a lot of the Internet on a mobile phone these days. More developers are offering stripped-down, mobile versions of their Web sites (find PC World's at mobile.pcworld.com), and more handsets can display the full sites themselves. Of course, the experience remains far from perfect. Sometimes you get a site's mobile version; other times you don't. Your hardware and your cellular connection can limit your speed. And then there's your cell phone's preinstalled browser: While designed, in theory, to work with your cell-phone hardware, it can force you to scroll around endlessly, it can mangle Web pages, and it can't yet fully display Flash content. For other options, see "Top 5 Third-Party Browsers" on the last page of this article.
