Slashdot Mobile: Now For Tablets As Well As Phones 123

Gaurav Kuchhal (Head of Product, Slashdot) writes "Slashdot Mobile has finally made it out of the gates for tablets as well as phones. The Mobile site for phones launched some weeks back, but now you can take advantage of the changes we've made to read Slashdot easier to read through touch-screen devices on tablets as well as phones. That includes features we've folded in to the mobile version from the desktop-browser view of the site, so you can scan user profiles, sip from the Firehose, and keep up with notifications. See this blog post for more details, and keep the feedback coming. If you see a problem, please tell us about it!"

    Serious question. Why did you create a separate web site rather than just use a different stylesheet with the "handheld" css media type?

    because they're realistic? name one complex forum type of site for which the different stylesheet approach works?

    this saves memory on the handheld sites - or at least makes it simpler for deciding which javascript to load to make the site function(and in which way).
    or at least should.

    (mobile browsers have different quirks and so forth.. and it's good if you can have the option of deciding which to go to. also some tablets run desktop os's and browsers..)

Q: How many IBM CPU's does it take to execute a job? A: Four; three to hold it down, and one to rip its head off.

Working...
