Any plans to support mobile viewing
Are there any plans to directly support mobile viewing of this web site? That is viewing iRV2 with web enabled cell phones. The previous version works, as does the new one, but the new web site is even more chatty (verbose). This does not make for a the most pleasurable experience. At some point it becomes, why bother, it takes too long to download a page.
There are two thing that help the mobile viewing:
1. Reduce the web page transmitted size.
2. Reduce the amount of decoration on the web page.
Note: this would even help those users with slow or marginal broadband. I love it when a hotel claims that they have broadband. This is one broadband connection for the hotel that all the guests share. Divide by the number of users online and you get a slow connection.
There are several things that could make iRV2 more mobile friendly:
1. Filter the web pages to remove extraneous blanks and tabs. When I looked at an example page of iRV2 25% of the content was un-needed blanks and tabs. Side by side the original page and the edited page were identical.
2. Some sites are starting to offer a "m." or mobile connection that simplifies the page decoration and reduces the capability to make viewing on the small (tiny) screens on the mobile web browsers work. For example the mobile main page would lack the following: fancy header at the top, the recent thread side bar, the list of online users, the stats, the links at the bottom, and the number of Ads would be reduced.
As an example: Wikipedia.org is a wonderful resource of information, but is effectively unusable on a mobile browser. It is readable, but there is one word per line, after formatting. Fortunately there is a mobile.wikipedia.org that makes wikipedia work on a cell phone browser. Bring up both sites side by side and see the difference.
