What device(s) do you use to surf/post in this forum?

Just curious what device do you guys use to surf this forum? I use my Ipad and PC. Rarely use my phone. It's tough to navigate and the keys are too small.

I'll make the poll multiple choices.

Most of the time I use a PC at home or work when I'm not busy.

Re: What device(s) do you use to surf/post in this forum?

All four answers apply to me.
Desktop (HTPC)
Laptop (work-provided)
Tablet (Nexus 7 and Surface Pro)
Phone (SGS3)

The site looks terrible on my SGS3. All the others are manageable.

Re: What device(s) do you use to surf/post in this forum?

Which browser do you use on the s3? I use dolphin browser and it is pretty legible and formatting isn't bad. If text size is too small, you can change it to a larger size. I am using my note 2 now, but when I had my gs3, i don't remember a major issue. Granted, it didn't look add good as desktop or tablet, but imo, still manageable.

Everything but a phone. Navigation is just too much of a hassle on a smaller screen. Looking forward to the Forum Runner option.

I use Chrome on the s3. I have to do a lot of double-tapping to zoom in and out to read stuff. If I switch to landscape view, it's not as bad.

But if IBobi was right about this site getting added to a certain mobile app, I'll just go that route going forward.

Chrome has issues with displaying the text properly. Dolphin does a much better job

It would be nice to finally get a mobile app support

Desktop, and a netbook (which I'm counting as a laptop as far as the poll is concerned).

Mostly just my desktop PC, I'll pull up the forum every once in a while on my phone when I'm on a long light rail ride to work/school

My work laptop and an iPad mainly. I hardly ever use my desktop any more unless it's to play a game. I only use Tapatalk on my phone, so...

Desktop only. MacPro 3.2GHZ quad core Xeon to be exact.

If I post at home, an iMac.

I use my phone and iPad for consumption only. And buying stuff.

Desktop and iPad. Once in a while I will use my iPhone for a quick lookup - primarily to verify something I read at home while I am out somewhere - but I never post from it, and never read from it for extended periods.

Re: What device(s) do you use to surf/post in this forum?

Laptop (and occasionally desktop) at home, laptop with monitor and docking station at work, rarely on my phone because it's too difficult (only if there's a particular thread I'm tracking--not for general browsing).
