davidcole: So opera will reflow on mobile, but chrome on iOS won’t, nor safari?

I always end up having to zoom in to get the text size bigger and move around the page. It doesn’t feel a good experience.

 

 

 

It most certainly does, though there is the odd site that seems to lock down zooming.

I have to agree that it isn’t a good experience on iOS. I can’t actually look at the site for long because it hurts my eyes and it’s too hard zooming and panning around. Surely in 2020 a tech enthusiast site can do better than this?

I'm pretty sure that it won't matter which browser you use on iOS as they all have to use the Apple Webkit rendering engine 

 

I've tried Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera on iOS and none of them reflow text on Geekzone

I have never tried Opera on iOS so your comment about reflow may well be correct. However you do have to turn on the reflow and possibly the zoom function in Settings before reflow will work in Opera.  Have you turned Reflow on?

I downloaded Opera Touch on iOS to give this a shot but could not find any reflow or zoom options in the settings - text size on geekzone is miniature like the other browsers. Nice browser though

It is what it is. I agree that the mobile experience is pretty poor but this is a one man show with what I believe is a custom CMS and front end.

 

It's wouldn't think it's changing anytime soon.
