Mobile Web Browsing – Rant and Guilt

I use my Nokia N95 to do a lot of web browsing  on the go but I get reallly ticked off by sites which don’t support mobile web browsers. Most sites could easily support Mobile Web Browsers through server-side detection and a bit of CSS. Sites like OSNews.com and Lifehacker.com both detect my Nokia and display in a Mobile friendly format (240×320) however other sites I visit regularly (Linux.com, Planet Ubuntu, Planet Ubuntu UK, Ubuntu Weblogs and any WordPress blog) all assume you’re using a regular web-browser and display oversized on my Nokia. Unfortunately having said that I’m guilty of non-mobile firendlieness here on AlanDoyle.com BUT I am working on modifying my theme to detect and support mobile web-browsers. End Rant.

Update: I’ve now updated the site to be mobile friendly.
