The Openwave browser was a large player in the dawning mobile market and closely tied in with the development of the WAP protocol. In 2006 it was installed on almost 50% of all shipped mobile devices. In 2008 it was sold to Purple Labs and later changed its name to Myriad. As of version 9 the browser switched to WebKit.
