  • You can probably guess by the version number 2.1.1 (from 2.1), there is nothing ground-breaking in this release. Just a few more bug fixes. In particular we have fixed a bug that caused the use of multiple <hr/> tags in your markup to reduce your overall score.

    RIP Openwave Mobile Browser

  • So as we all get spun up in the excitement and wonder over iPhone 2.0, and as Apple appears to continue its ascendancy in the mobile space, I feel compelled to share about a company that’s gone in the other direction. I don’t know if folks don’t care, or there really isn’t any impact as a result of it, but either way I feel inclined to spend some pixels on a recent development.

    240x320, the new standard screen resolution

  • I've had this theory for the last few months, and so I've decided to put it to the test. Today, most of the new phones you can buy have a screen resolution of at least 240x320 and are fully web xHTML (WAP 2.0) capable. When I see all the new models constantly coming to market, it's clear that the common screen width is definitely shifting to 240x320 pixels.

    Cookie Support, and Mobile Devices

  • If you're a regular on the site, you'll have noticed that we have been hard at work creating a new Test Suite that will play nicely with DeviceAtlas. During its development, I've had to put up with a ridiculous amount of obscure problems, but there's one that continually rears its ugly, ugly head and makes life hell for me. Cookie support. Or lack of it.

    Device Testing is here, TA-DA!

  • We all know how important accurate device profiles are, and this is proven by the success DeviceAtlas has already had in less than 4 month. In the initial months we have focused on consolidating existing "database silos" and we are still doing that, but we want to do more now and introduce real-time browser testing with TA-DA.

    The worst practices of the mobile web, part II

  • A few months ago, I blogged about the worst mistakes I saw on mobile sites. Since this time I have visited and analysed plenty more mobile sites (so that my search crawler can process them better), and I have a few more offenders whose practices can make mobile browsing a nightmare...
