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.

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.

Agree 100%. But, just because no one has made a decent mobile threaded discussion interface before, doesn't mean it shouldn't be tried.

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?

Sorry, I posted the same comment multiple places, in the other spot I specified I was using Cyanogen Android 7.1, which is pretty close to stock. It still gives it the mobile site, which is terrible.
