Agreed, except I never had to switch back from phone to laptop. A laptop is so much superior it's not even funny. Using a phone to browse the internet is so annoying. Sites take much longer to load, are displayed the wrong way, have unclickable buttons and are more difficult and slow to navigate. Tapping the wrong button/link because of inaccuracies or just big fingers happens frequently.
You also don't need a shit ton of apps, because surfing via browser is already convinient enough.
Indeed. This site is one that really benefits from what you mentioned, the mobile site is such poop and the ad in the reply box is so awkwardly placed by design for clicks, i'd imagine. I think it might be one of the reasons the hurts the site in its decline.
