In this paper we propose a mobile agent based system for wireless mobile internet. We show that our agent based system has some desirable properties which are effective in compensating the drawbacks of wireless environment, mobile device limitations and TCP, HTTP protocol limitations in wireless environment. We describe the system architecture and operation scenario. We clearly define what to mobilize and how to achieve this. We discuss the benefits of using agent in this scenario and show how different optimization techniques can easily be incorporated in such a system due to its flexibility.
