    Hi,

    Many web pages (e.g., www.cnn.com) are served up pretty poorly on Treo's Blazer browser. Especially pages with frames.

    But I have noticed that the google home page is much simpler on my Treo than when I go there from my desktop -- I guess google knows I am accessing the page from a PDA and serves up a cleaner page?

    Is there some software that will reformat the pages to be easier to read on the Treo? Or do certain web sites have special "alternate" pages that are easier to view?

    Also, is there a way to not download the in-line graphics for web pages and just get the text so the pages download faster?

    Thanks!

    there are a bunch of sites that group together sites designed for palm viewing. some are as follows (i just have these all bookmarked in blazer)

    wap.oa.yahoo.com (yahoo mobile)
    mobile.yahoo.com
    www.pawgo.com
    www.thumpmonkey.com
    http://209.221.153.18/smallsites/
    www.mymobilestuff.com/palm
    www.mapquest.com/pda/main.adp
    wireless.mapquest.com/palm/v3.0/index.html

    pawgo, yahoo, thumpmonkey, smallsites, and mymobilestuff are pages of links to news, sports, etc formatted for the palm.

    as always, there are matters of taste and your actual usage, which is why there are 2 yahoos and 2 mapquests there. both have been listed on this board by different folks as their favorites, each has its strong points.
