  4. 4. Overview of the Internet The Internet is composed of three layers. A huge ecosystem of content and service providers has emerged on top of them. 3 Source: December 2013

  6. 6. The rise of the mobile Internet  Mobile Internet accounted for 15% of all Internet traffic in May 2013.  That’s a 150% increase compared to 2012.  The rhythm of growth of the mobile Internet is constant or even increasing.

  7. 7. The mobile Internet is the domain of mobile apps  Internet users prefer apps for accessing the Internet on a mobile.  U.S. smartphone users spend about 25 hours per month on mobile apps, and just 4 hours on mobile Web.  Why ? Simply because apps are much easier and more convenient to use than mobile Web sites.

  9. 9. Rejoice!  The Internet is still an open space for technological innovation. It is possible to freely introduce new application layers on the Internet to meet the changing needs of users. Illustration : KMJPhotography – Creative Commons 8 December 2013
  10. 10. The problems with apps for content publishers  The development, distribution and maintenance of a mobile app is a much more complex and costly project than publishing a Web site. Updating a Web site Updating a mobile app Simply upload the new Web pages to the server Develop a new version of the app (i.e.: software development) Get approval from the "Store" Invite users to download and install the new app Repeat all the above for each mobile platform (device and OS) 9 December 2013
  11. 11. Apps are also far from perfect for end-users  Users cannot install thousands of apps on their device (storage limitation).  Installing apps is time consuming.  Heavy apps require high speed Internet connections, not always available for users on the move.  Risk of malwares  Issue of access to personal data 10 December 2013
  12. 12. Content publishers and users cannot meet easily  Most content publishers don’t have the time or money to create mobile apps.  Neither can they maintain dozens of versions of mobile Web sites.  Publishers of content on the Internet are increasingly isolated from end-users.

  13. 13. The introduction of Frogans sites on the Internet  After 14 years of R&D, a new software layer is about to appear on the Internet.  Content publishers will be able to publish content and services on a new type of sites, Frogans sites.  End-users will be able to browse them by means of specific software, Frogans Player, which will be downloadable for free from the OP3FT. 12 December 2013
  14. 14. Benefits of Frogans sites for publishers  The promise: a Frogans site can be developed only once and still be rendered in exactly the same way, down to the pixel level, on all devices, fixed and mobile, present and future.  Validating the publication of a Frogans site will be quick: a single test will be enough, on any device.

  15. 15. Benefits of Frogans sites for end-users  Frogans sites will be easy to browse: no additional learning needed.  On a touch screen mobile device, a hand and a finger will be enough to browse.  Frogans sites will be accessible through specific, short identifiers: Frogans addresses. These addresses can include non-latin characters.  Unlike Web URLs, Frogans addresses include no character with a technical meaning, except the asterisk “ * ” .  The “ * ” characterizes a Frogans address, in the same way that the sign “@” characterizes an E-mail address.
