How geeky can things related to metal music get? Well, thinking about something called “mobile strategy for the website” is probably the geekiest thing a metal band can do. The stereotypical metal musicians should drink beer and play their instruments instead of spending hours finishing their websites.
Well, times have changed. In the late 90s, a web designer only had to take care that the website looks ok in Netscape and Internet Explorer. But now, the world is full of different browsers and devices: computers, phones and tablet computers, different versions of different operating systems and so on. And this makes the situation a bit more difficult than before.
So, one big question pops up. How to make a website look nice and work perfectly on all the possible platforms?
In the end, there are two priorities.1. To make the website easy to use no matter which device and browser you are using. And 2. To make the content of the website easy for us to update. The former one is naturally the primary priority whereas the latter one is just a nice bonus.
By the way, if you are wondering the same things as I am, I recommend Opera Mobile Emulator. It provides a nice way to see how different sites look with different devices. http://www.opera.com/developer/tools/mobile/
