Do you like browsing the web on a smartphone?
>>
Not particularly. Lots of sites do a terrible job with mobile layout.
>>
>>61852858
It's better than using disgusting public computers, or carrying a laptop around, at least.
>>
>>61852890
This. It's convenient but in most cases I'd rather be on a computer
>>
>>61852858
Never, except for watching some lite Jewtube stuff.
Browsing the internet on a screen smaller than 27" is unbearable.

The fuck
>>61852858
Y, browsing 4chins since the original psp added the webbrowser, I remember listening to music and downloading porn images from here back then

>>61852858
I use a S3 so I'm starting to get low on RAM at certain points. So for anything rather light it works fine, but opening multiple tabs is pretty useless.
>>
>>61853169
Are you on 7.1?
>>
>>61853207
Nah, CM13 (6.0.1). The low amount of RAM on the S3 is annoying, but I can't complain that my phone doesn't work.
>>
>>61852858
no it's cancer. Also on mobile you don't have as much freedom as on desktop
>>
>>61852858
The shit I had to go through to make it barely acceptable due to all the completely retarded limitations they impose because "lolmobile doesn't need it xD" is what I don't like. Basically I'd like to see an actually good and powerful, lightweight with good battery life x86 compatible smartphone sized device without all the locks and spynet hardware built in. Nothing like this truly exists.
>>
>>61852858
No
>>
>>61853079
i get those popups even with adblock
>>
>>61853670
Get a better ad block, ublock origin on mobile firefox works perfect.

Can you install addons on mobile browsers? Do they cost money?

Let me guess, you have an iPhone

I don't like doing anything on a smartphone.

I have an android but I only surf on desktop because of the obnoxious ads. I searched for an adblocker once but only toxic freemium or even paid "apps"
>>
>>61853786
>what is dns66
How new are you?
>>
>>61852858
yes I do, but only 5 inch+ screens and with a built-in adblocker on the browser.
>>
>>61853786
Adaway + Firefox with UBlock Origin and your problems are solved
>>
Only on the BlackBerry Passport and Classic
>>
>>61852858
Not really.

>>61852909
Actually, I am inclined to disagree. I'm also not one of those people who gets afraid of what people would think of a thinkpad in public or what have you.
>>
>>61852858
I fucking despise using the web on a smartphone.

Most websites lack a mobile version. Those that have one will constantly spam you to use their official app which is almost always worse than their mobile site. There are exceptions -- like Genius.com. Browsing is better on a tablet because at least then you have a larger screen.
>>
>>61852858
No, I fucking hate it.


There's no forward key
Websites have a different layout than the real proper site and if you have a link to a forum it always redirects you to the mobile version but since that link differs from the regular link you end up on the index page, and IF you manage to come to that specific site, it's taptalked and images doesn't load or whatfuckingever.
>>
No.
[View this reply in our web app.]
>>
>>61853686
I'll still get popups occasionally with that exact setup
>>
>>61853786
Root + adaway?
>>
>>61854031
Or just download our app instead!
Install our app!
Did we mention you should install our app?
>>
why is it that 4chan doesnt have it's own offcial app?
>>
>>61855009
exactly, this would never happen on desktop because I can just block this shit with addons
>>
>>61855217
firefox for android has addons :-]
>>
i didn't even look for my laptop after i broke it. love my s7 edge. also, floens rocks \m/

No it's pretty shit but I do it sometimes because I can
>>
>>61852858
an iPad/mini with firefox and adblockers would be the perfect browsing experience, if only it had WebM support
>>
>>61852858
I don't mind. Naked browser has built in hostsfile style adblock, built in javascript blocker, and easily switches between mobile and desktop modes which also comes in handy. Honestly I browse more on my phone than I do my home desktop
>>
>>61852858
yes
>>
>>61852858
No. Touchscreens will NEVER be as intuitive and easy to manipulate as a mouse and keyboard.

Phones are merely a convenient substitute when you're on the go.

>>61855554
Change your phone lcd density
I halved mine and people always ask me how I can read anything cause the text is so small, but that's the only way I can properly read without scrolling every 2 seconds. Everyone's phone I see reminds me of those young adult books with fuckhuge text

meh, though the mobile version of 4chan is surprisingly comfy

Get puffin. Once you go black you never go back
>>
No. Can't use inspect element to get rid of annoying shit.
Does anyone know a browser that allows the use of inspect element?
>>
How can you people stand firefox on a phone? Does it get usable on a flagship? On SD625 it takes so long to load a page (lightning is at least 2 times faster).
>>
>>61852858
With the s8 quite a lot. On a PC with multi window support its more pleasant. But try to take a laptop to the bathroom or use it in the bus :0
>>
>>61853786
Lol are you retarded? Even the Samsung browser has free adblockers. You can install an app proxying locally your traffic to remove Adds. Come in even the iPhone has adblockers lol
>>
>>61859077
Clover and all the pain is gone. For Reddit or 4chan or Kickstater I use apps. Way more convenient
>>
>>61855212
Clover

>>61859377
I don't know how or why, but Firefox takes ages to open sites on my Moto E when it used to just fine a couple of months ago.
>>
>>61858786
Don't forget a decent trackpad!
>>
Whats the the most safest and private browser on mobile platform? Im siding with firefox but if theres any others I'd like to know.
>>
I do try to avoid shopping there but sometimes it's hard to avoid.. anyway...bestgoy's site is a steaming pile of maggot filled shit, so much worse on mobile oh my fuck I don't understand how a company that primarily sells tech stuff and sells a lot of it online can have such incompetent fucking shitheads working on the website
