The current user interface is broken when using a Palm Pre which is a WebKit browser (just like safari on the iPhone). I see there is also already a FRQ in for iPhone-Friendly formatting, so I'm adding this as a combined new FRQ.

You could kill 2 popular smartphone birds with one enhancement, then we can get our slashfix while mobile!

Problem: Site hangs when clicking "Many More" on iPhone or Pre. Also: screen size requires constant adjustment to format stories correctly. Many portals now recognize the browser ID string and format special versions for smartphone users. Please consider implementation of this valuable feature to get more mobile readers going!

Thanks!
