Mobile web traffic has now surpassed the desktop web traffic and has become the primary means for service providers to reach out to the billions of end users. Due to this trend, optimization of mobile web browsing (MWB) has gained significant attention. In this paper, we present a survey of techniques for improving the efficiency of web browsing on mobile systems, proposed in the last 6-7 years. We review the techniques from both the networking domain (eg, proxy and browser enhancements) and the processor architecture domain (eg, hardware customization and thread-to-core scheduling). We organize the research works based on key parameters to highlight their similarities and differences. Beyond summarizing the recent works, this survey aims to emphasize the need of architecting for MWB as the first principle, instead of retrofitting for it.
