I noticed a slight difference on the website when viewed on a desktop browser and on a Sailfish browser. By Sailfish browser I mean either the native Sailfish browser or Firefox browser on Android support.

This is the site on my desktop browser (also Firefox):

TJC on Firefox, desktop computer

And this is the site on Firefox on Sailfish X (looks basically the same on the native browser):

TJC on Firefox, Sailfish X

The main difference is that no. of views and last edited info is not displayed on the Sailfish version.

Does the Sailfish browsers load a mobile version of the site or is there another reason? The layout is basically the same so I don't really understand the purpose.

Being signed in or signed out does not make a difference.

BTW, I also use the native Jolla Together app for browsing the site on Sailfish.

Hi @TomC, and yes, this is due to responsive design. I had a quite similar question:

Ok, it's because of the mobile design. But why leave out such elements of information? Although I'm not a web designer, I think mobile design should not have to mean leaving out stuff. I see it more as distributing the elements differently to make everything large and clear enough.

Why? Beats me.
