    Hello all,

    I am loving my new Windows Phone (HTC Trophy, Verizon).

    However, when I visit the Twitter and Facebook mobile sites, they are not of the standards found on the iPhone's browser. Is there an answer for this? Are they in HTML 5 and it isn't supported yet?

    It's perplexing me.. sometimes I like the speed and use of mobile sites better than the app counterpart.

    Thanks!

    Because ignorant web devs are programming their websites in webkit and not the basic html5 standard that's compatible with all browsers.

    But if you don't include the iphone in the web address and go straight to www.facebook.com you will get a nasty look page of facebook. But if you include the iphone in the address you get just what the iphone facebook app brings just that this is on a page. I think it has something to do with apple.

    Facebook just doesn't recognize the mobile IE9 to redirect you. They'll probably update it in like a year or so just like every other website does. It takes forever because they don't care about that small marketshare.

    Wait so that's why touch.facebook.com isn't working anymore? Because they changed it to iphone.facebook.com? That's such BS. -.-

    I only get that on the official twitter app. Nowhere else though, try one of the dozen Twitter apps.

    Yeah I've tried a couple. I liked seesmic but didn't like the red text. pentile display and all that....makes the pixels visible when it's red. I'll find one though... lol
