Transfer and restore anonymous user'

In the era of mobile internet, user usually uses different smart devices such as laptop/smart mobile phone to work. Thinking of these scenarios:

Scenario

Scenario

       111:: Suppose that you are reading one very popular novel such as "ZhenHuanZhuan" in the website by your laptop at your home . But if you continue reading them, you cannot catch up the party with your best friends. So you have to hold on your reading unfortunately in your laptop, and then switch your reading activity to your phone. Usually you need to open the website again and search the target novel in the phone. After found it, you also need to find the target page (usually the last page) in the novel. It works, but it is too complex for you. So you just want to directly go to the last page you read when you switch to your phone from laptop.

Scenario

222:::

         Suppose that you are assigned to one task to arrange your visitor's trip in the Beijing. You plan to take them to "The Great Wall" in the 1st day. So you need to do some searching in the website by laptop to be more familiar with it. Firstly you type with the keyword "The Great Wall" in the Search Engine of some website, and then you will browse these websites about its basic introduction and photos. Since you also need to know how to go there from the visitor's hotel, then you open another map website to get the specific location and the traffic from hotel to "The Great Wall". All the searching results are related about this arrangement. They are very important to you. So you want to package them together so that you do not need to search them again in another PC next time. It will take you a lot of time to repeat the searching activity which is boring.

In these two cases, the end user is browsing the websites with anonymous user, not authorized user. Usually the server side of these websites do not track or save the anonymous user's activity. So if user wants to continue the last reading or searching activity in another smart device, user has to re-search it again since the last session status can't be stored automatically and transferred between devices. It will take much effort to restore the previous action and sever session. If we can use a mechanic to restore the session status in the web server quickly, that will bring a better user experience.

Smart device should have CPU and can access web applications (online shopping web site, email web site, etc.) which are located on remote servers.

Initiator can detect nearby smart device via existing wireless or other communication technology.

Initiator and receivers (neighbors) can set up security authentication relationship before transferring.

Initiator can package web applications and security identification or other security session information, then drop or throw out to neighbors.

Receiver can extract them and continue process or operate transaction in receiver's device without...
