Trying to understand the Chrome issue on GZ....


Reflow..... Is that something that makes a zoomed page wrap to screen width?


Ah Ha.. I have done some tests and indeed when over zooming, Opera does a Reflow or Wraps the text to within screen width.


Chrome does not do that.


I am happy with Chrome and the text size when the forum content fits across the screen.


My old eyes seem to be doing well.... :-)

Geekzone on mobile is a generally poor experience. It's not mobile responsive so tiny fonts and a fairly crippled editor compared to desktop etc. I guess it's not going to change but it is a shame.

IMO having to use a different browser to deal with a sites problems is a poor UX. I also get that this is a part time hobby for Freitasm so it's not like there are unlimited resources.

GZ isn't mobile responsive. But that is fine with me as I personally am not a fan of many mobile websites. Infact when the iphone was first launched, it ability to view full desktop websites on the small screen, and allowing you to double tap to zoom into areas was seen as one of its selling points. The problem I find with many mobile sites is that not as much information is displayed on them ,as is on the desktop website, as sections can be hidden.

I'm using Samsung Internet Browser. Other websites render properly. Most people would read on a mobile device in portrait. Could the site recognise that and render accordingly?

Also I think it's the OP's specific browser. Like on the desktop world, we can't really code for all different browsers around.

MadEngineer: Safari here, no problem.


.... on which platform? Very small on iPad.

Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.
