is touting a user hosted perl script that, if
off of the standard Slash-based experience, one of which is our very own SoylentNews. Audiences include
those with very limited bandwidth, such as those in developing countries with
only 2G mobile access or dialup."
It WAS used for firehose, but that feature is so nackered, I don't think its coming back without a rewrite.
How about adding a user-agent dropdown as part of the homepage preferences? Then for my desktop mozilla I can have the full blown experience. For my mobile browser I could pick Simple+Low/B+No Icons. When I visit preferences there could be a "default" for all UAs and a (+) button to add my current UA.
That should make a friendly "mobile" soylent site with (hopefully) little extra coding.
