Make Your Site Mobile-Friendly in Two Minutes

Mike Davidson explains how you can use server-side scripting to Make Your Site Mobile-Friendly in Two Minutes.

It’s an interesting approach that I’ll take a closer look at. When testing this site with mobile devices I’ve found it to be completely usable, but sure, stripping out unnecessary stuff to cut down on bandwidth seems like a good idea.

  1. If going through a mobile proxy like Googles ( the proxy stripes out most of the unwanted stuff. If you want to remove other stuff I think the only way would be to use browser sniffing, or is it another way?

    Jens: What Mike suggests is setting up a domain mirror for the stripped version. All requests made through that subdomain will be run through the script without any browser sniffing. Or were you thinking of something else?

  3. I was reading your post too fast ;)
