Comment Mobile sites are terrible (Score 1) 166

Having a separate mobile site is a terrible idea. They are often sufficiently different from the "full" site that all brand continuity is lost and it might as well be a completely different site altogether.

I browse in desktop mode on my mobile and /. is perfectly usable, for crying out loud.

Phones are still an order of magnitude too slow (at least) for their UI. My latest phone is the quickest yet but still nowhere near as responsive as it should be. We aren't even close yet. I would add that it may be business model, as UI lag is the #1 cause of high-speed smartphone-concrete interaction, thus leading to new phone purchases.
