So what do the fellow monks think?

I think you need an iPhone version, and to stop wasting time on IE :-)

    As an unIE user, I support the above notion.

    ++ to stop wasting time on IE. Does the monastery have any browser numbers? If the IE numbers are low (and I sure hope they are), a link to google chrome frame is all you need.

      I have done some asking around about PerlMonks stats but so far I have found nothing. In terms of chrome frame the markup I have does use it.

      <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge,chrome=1">

      That meta tag tells IE browsers to do 2 things. First if chrome frame is installed then use it to render this page instead of IE. If that fails IE will use the newest rendering mode it has based on version (IE 7 using strict instead of IE6 quirks mode for example).

    IE has always been a problem for web design, I have been doing this for over 13 years now and I always spend more time getting things to work correctly on IE than all the other browsers combined. Looking at different browser market share reports the really bad versions of IE (anything less than 9.x) are still getting wide use.

    As for an iPhone version I am testing the site on an iPhone emulator. Specifically I am trying out iphone4simulator which is web based. Anyone have recommendations for an iphone testing service? I have no way to determine if the simulator I am using now even acts like an actual iphone. Android and Opera have emulators and browsers I can run locally that are the real thing. For the iphone I have only seen something like that on an actual MacOS X system.
