When visiting stackoverflow on my mobile phone, it seems to be downloading a lot of data. For the home page, it shows somewhere over 500 K near completion, although I can't tell the exact size since the progress bar disappears on my browser. I'm using a Nokia C5, with a user agent of:
Mozilla/5.0 (SymbianOS/9.4; Series50/5.0 NokiaC5-04.1/10.1.031;Profile/MIDP-2.1 Configuraion/CLDC-1.1) AppleWebKit/525 (KHTML like Gechk) Version/3.0 BrowserNG/22.214.171.124.3gpp-gba
My Accept Encoding header is
gzip, deflate, x-gzip,identity; q=0.9
Why is it downloading so much data? Shouldn't the mobile site be smaller to account for people without unlimited data plans?
