Context sensitive applications can significantly enhance the use of wireless, handheld, devices to access the Internet. Such systems compensate for the limited space and, as well, for the on-the-move nature of handheld usage; they automatically download the appropriate applications and information according to who is using the system, when and where it is being accessed, and even the surrounding circumstances. This sort of special context sensitive tailoring can, for example, eliminate extensive menus and simplify multi-click access routines.
