    RWD: Responsible Web Design and how websites cope with compromised connectivity

  • Like most people, I use the internet a lot in the evenings when I have some downtime. Although I live in the centre of European capital city (Dublin) which ought to be fairly weIl served with cell tower coverage, I also happen to live in an old house with 12 inch thick poured concrete walls. Getting good a connection for voice calls has never been guaranteed, so I wanted to check how well some major brand’s web presences would fare under my particular set of circumstances on a mobile network connection.

    Faulty redirects, Google, and you

  • Google has, for some time now, recommended various guidelines that should be observed when redirecting visitors from a desktop site to a mobile site. One such recommendation is that visitors who request a specific page on the desktop site should be redirected to the corresponding page on the mobile site, and should not be redirected to the homepage of the mobile site.

Google recently published a document on the main mistakes people make when working on mobile websites for smartphones. If you look through the list you can definitely recognize a cornerstone of Google's approach: focus on the end user. Or put another way, "adopt the approach you want but be aware of your audience".

    Introducing Prism, a tool for testing device adaptation

  • Due to the multifarious nature of the mobile web, developers tend to spend a lot of time testing their work. If your site is designed to adapt to multiple different devices this effort is multiplied because you need to ensure that your detection is working correctly across multiple devices and that your response is appropriate in each case.

    Future of the Mobile Web Whitepaper

  • We're very happy to publish this paper arising from the The Future of the Mobile Web event held at the Dublin Convention Centre in January 2012. We covered a lot of ground and the paper is a serious attempt to capture all the topics covered from HTML5 to responsive design to device detection and many others. We found it to be a very worthwhile process to listen, validate our ideas and learn from others in the process of writing it. We hope it is useful to a wider readership also.

    The Mobile Web is alive and well in Startup Land

  • dotMobi was at CrunchLudd last night and we got to talk to plenty of cool web startups from Dublin. I'm imagining there might have a similar event 12 years ago for print, media, graphic design and CD-ROM startups. And a ranting sponsor (who perhaps looked a bit like me) from the fledgling Internet industry kept telling them that the web would soon change their world.
