    I used to have the mobile version of IMDB book marked on my Pre -. Now I'm running a Franken Pre2 on Sprint and have lost the bookmark. Does anyone have the link?

    Thanks!

    I think its a default just type search option. You might need to go to JT prefs to enable it.

    Replacing "www" with "m" is the standard for mobile sites. Or at least it used to be. Still works for many sites though.
    Touchscreens are a fad.

    Doesn't the browser "know" you're coming from a mobile device, and default to the mobile version already?

    I've never had to know the mobile site; the site has just always landed there (in fact, that's a problem when I want the standard site, but they usually have a link that says something like "standard website version" or something).

    Nope. It's not a matter of whether or not the browser knows. It's a matter of how the browser reports it's user agent, and whether or not the website you're going to was programed to recognize your particular browser as a mobile browser and dish up the mobile version of the site.

    There are many websites that don't recognize the user agent provided by WebOS and dish up the standard page as a result. That's why there are patches out there that switch your browser agent to iphone. That was websites think you're browsing on an iphone which is recognized by a larger number of websites.

    I've never used the user agent patch because m. usually works, and I want web admins to see that WebOS users are connecting to their mobile site.

    I thought 2.0 had IMDB as a just type preference?

    I am fairly certain there is also a patch to add IMDB as a "just type" target to 1.4.5 as well.

    Yup, there is: http://forums.precentral.net/webos-p...ml#post2626824
