You all know that Internet Explorer Mobile isn't the best browser for non-mobile-friendly sites. Enter Deepfish and its zooming mechanism. It closely resembles Safari on the iPhone in that you zoom into and load only the portion of the page that you need to access. The result is a very fast and enjoyable browsing experience, although truth be told, there is still plenty of room for improvement. Some dynamic content isn't supported, text input in certain form fields is a little flaky, and the interface needs a bit of polishing up - all the things expected in a preview version. That's where you come in. Microsoft would like your feedback, so head over to the Deepfish web page, download the application (note that it's being offered on a limited first-come, first-served basis), and give it a test run. Additional screenshots are available after the break.
Update: Head over to on10.net for a video tour.
