Thunderhawk is a proxy-based browser. It means that requests from the Pocket PC are sent to a server which will request webpages on behalf of the Pocket PC client. These pages can then be customised for best viewing in the Pocket PC platform (this concept is similar to Handspring Blazer, a proxy browser for Palm OS). Thunderhawk works in landscape mode, offering a enhanced fonts and image resize.
