NetBiscuits: How fascinating can it be to create a mobile website?

My very first impression was like why do I need it, who wants to see a site on a mobile? How would a website be able to fit into my mobile without destroying the look and feel of a desktop site?

Not so long ago, I remember behavior of a site varied in content display on the mobile device depending on the device type and OS used. Sometime, we have different browsers behaving different way making users’ life tough and it comes out to be complete wastage of time as we have to again go back to desktop site for more information. There was no optimization and user experience was impacted. Original idea was to convert the mobile users permanently stick to mobile browsing but it didn’t turn out well.

From a developer’s perspective:

– Page load takes a lot of on mobile which takes less time on desktop.

– Phones have different form factors, screen sizes, menu and navigation hardware.

– Handset variation which are getting updated daily in the global market and difficult to track each and every version.

I got my first mobile website development project and got introduced to NetBiscuits. To describe it, I have included an excerpt from their site.
