OSNews, Generic OSes Ah yes, why not? The last time we did this, it was March 2011, so it's been almost a year since we offered a little insight into what kind of operating systems and browsers you, dear readers, are using. Nothing particularly earth-shattering going on here.

I was wondering about the mobile stuff as well (incl. Android). TBH, I generally just use gReader on my Android phone. My guess is that the feeds are being pulled from Google to my phone with Google's servers doing the actual hits to the feed. The only time I hit the site itself from my phone is if I wanted to check out the comments.

OSNews just sort of sucks on Android's Browser. I do it to look at the topics. I definitely would use it more if it just let me view the regular version of the Website. But that's kind of a pain in the but.

I don't mind the mobile OSNews too much. Only complaint is it's difficult to follow threaded conversations due to (wait for it) there are no threads! Understandably so, ever hit a site on a mobile browser that uses Disqus for the comment system? If not check out engadgets, it's pretty crap-tastic in my opinion. But then again, I don't particularly care for Disqus (or endgadget) in my full fledged desktop browser either.

The site looks great on my Galaxy Tab 10.1. It is not the browser that is the problem. You should know better than making such a generalized comment like that. What device are you using?
