I've noticed that I'm having to change the settings on Firefox for text size on Windows 7 every time I open a website.

It's like everything is now formatted in one column for every iTard to read on their phone.

You don't need to be on an IOS device to appreciate mobile formats. Around 30% of web traffic is now taking place on smartphones*. Though the small text has been around for quite some time. Any decent web site should still load one way on a desktop and another way on mobile. This is usually done either by having a responsive design that automatically adapts to smaller screens or a separate mobile site. I don't know why you have to be so negative towards mobile users though.

Haven't experienced anything like that. Sometimes there's a glitch while I'm on a site and the formatting changes a size, but it's easily adjustable, and most are isolated incidents.

I'm sure he didn't mean it the way it was written. But it is frustrating as more and more sites are being designed for mobile devices only. The simplistic designs, over size images and fonts and continuously loading webpages are annoying as they degrade a desk top users experience.

Thanks for the link. I wondered know many ppl are accessing the internet via such devices. In other words how long before the death of the desktop! I see it dropped a percent. I wonder if it's going to level off now, or will mobile devices reach or surpass desktop users in the next 5 years?

OP: Yes it did!

You should have downloaded it when you had the chance!

Dang. I guess I'll just wait until I find someone's outdated one that they've left by the curb. smile
