View Any Site on a Cell Phone

    January 14, 2006

One thing that is a pain is on many phones looking at a full Web page is painful.

MSN has a neat little search feature that lets you look at a Web site reformatted specifically for viewing on a phone. Just go to MSN Mobile Search, put in the site’s URL that you want to visit, and click “mobile” next to the result.

For instance, TechCrunch really sucks on many phones (you have to scroll to see the content and the page takes a long time to load up). Sorry Mike, but it’s true.

Looking at TechCrunch this way makes it a lot nicer on a cell phone (although TechCrunch could help even more by moving its content DIV on top of its navigation DIV).
