Well lets be honest, these people where probably not coming from the luxury most of us are used to today. A lot of modern people lack a lot of the practical skills that our grandfathers took for granted (you didn't call a plumber you fixed it yourself)

For communities where irc is integral part of their communication I have found this to be true. However as soon as it is used as a extra (get in touch with the mods, developers, etc) IRC becomes frustrating very soon and often resembles a empty echoing chamber or a classroom where all students are talking and no one is listening (mostly seen in #help like channels).

So IRC as a means of communication is in my experience very much context dependent.

Unfortunately I don't think it is possible to use userstyles on the iphone (unless one of the thirdparty browsers has build in support for it)

- Not having to zoom in . - Links and buttons that are re-sized for easier touch access. - Lightbox menu's that you don't have to go look for. - Some other enhancements in regard to comments and feed listing. - No elements that weirdly scroll into each other.

Basically small enhancements to make hubski for me more enjoyable.

Oh and hard to use is mostly in comparison with similar websites or apps that have become my reference of what is possible (hackernews app, several reddit apps). It is not hard to use compared to other desktop websites on my phone, but it is hard to use in comparison with good mobile layouts.

Have been using for a while now, still plenty of things to polish but it makes the websites usable on a phone.

Damn, sorry to see you go. I do however hope that you will find what you are after in here.

Best of luck!
