    Blackberry OS 5.0 is not supported since it doesn't run a Webkit browser, do you know what other browser is he using the site with.

    I'm currently looking for alternatives to the JS library (Zepto) we use for the mobile site since it works great on Mobile Webkit browsers (Android, iOS, BB OS 6, webOS and similar) but it doesn't support any other mobile browser engines. There is no alternative that compares to Zepto's lightness. jQuery I consider to be to bloated for a mobile site and the only option I have left is EnderJS but the site will need some refactoring and I have to add support for swipe events since it doesn't support them natively as Zepto does.

    Great Site!

    I realize that this is a relatively old thread, however I would like to commend you on the design and layout - it is perfect. I definitely do not find it "bulky".

    The only minor annoyance for me is the pop-up that reads "Click down here to add TechSpot to your home screen" (every time you enter the site). It is a little repetitive and obstructive.

    Hello Matt12345170,

    The pop-up should only appear the first time you enter the site. It uses a localStorage variable to save the data so that it's only shown once. Maybe you are using private browsing or your browser doesn't support localStorage yet.

    What OS and browser are you using?

    Yes, I did have private browsing enabled. I'll turn that off, sorry about that :)
