mobile Web site

mobile Web site

A Web site designed for the small screens of smartphones. Queries to a Web site include the type of browser being used, and when a request from a mobile browser is made, the site redirects it to its mobile counterpart (if there is one) for a more convenient surfing experience. Once bookmarked, users can access the site by its own name such as mobile.pcmag.com. Mobile sites render their pages in narrow columns and often provide only a subset of their regular Web site. Contrast with native mobile app. See mobile Web browser, responsive Web design and mobile version.


Regular Vs. Mobile
Browsing to answers.com from a computer on your desk returns the page at the top, but if the request comes from a mobile phone, the page from mobile.answers.com comes back instead. Although any regular Web page can be scrolled in a mobile browser, it is much easier to read a page formatted for a tiny screen.
