Evergreen doesn't fare quite as well with Microsoft's rather decrepit PocketExplorer browser on my HTC Touch smartphone (it's a Windows Mobile monstrosity, sigh), but it does work well with the Opera Mobile 9.5 beta browser. I eagerly anticipate the first good release of Fennec for Windows Mobile (coming soon!), as I'm confident that's going to improve my mobile Web browsing experience even further.
Those sites that decide to push core functionality into Flash or SilverLight, on the other hand, can go straight to hell, thankyouverymuch. I'm looking at you, PTOnTheNet. This is a site to which Lynn has been a paying customer for years. It recently announced that it was revising the Web site, which is all well and good. What's not so good is that they adopted SilverLight: not just for pretty effects here and there, but as a core technology. Problem: Lynn has been using Linux at home since I introduced her to it somewhere around eight years ago, and last year bought one of the early models of the Linux-based Asus EEE netbook. Not only did the site redesign destroy the personal training programs she had set up for her clients over the years (breaking site redesign rule #1: Thou shalt not destroy your clients' data), but it also renders her netbook useless for that site.
