Mobile browsing

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

It’s funny to notice that the mobile web scene is in a better state than the complete mess we have in the Desktop. Some years ago it wasn’t true, but the mobile revolution guided by the iPhone changed everything.

WebKit is the main player in nearly all mobile devices. iPhone, Android, WebOS, Nokia, BlackBerry and many more operating systems are using a WebKit browser with a relative updated version. This means we can use complex JavaScript mobile websites with HTML5, CSS3 and a lot of cool things.

Of course we have some exceptions. Windows Mobile and Windows Phone use some Internet Explorer variation, an old, outdated and bad browser for mobile. But we have some cool alternative mobile browsers too, like Opera Mobile, Firefox Mobile, Skyfire and a few others.

Which browser are you using on mobile?
