What mobile browser are you using?

This reply comes via Firefox on Android. Prior to that, I used Opera Mobile on both Android and - in the dim and distant past - Nokia Symbian S60.

Frankly, I find the simple layout and lack of clutter worked brilliantly on all of those, and continues to do so... So I'm very curious to see what mobile browser can possibly do such a bad job as to warrant this comment!
(Just so I can avoid it...)

if the screen is too narrow the fixed size left column is a problem

Adding ?format=printable to any lwn url makes the left column go away. But as far as I know there's no option to have that for all pages by default.
