Questions tagged [mobile-web]

For questions about the now removed mobile versions of Stack Exchange sites. Since the responsive design has replaced the mobile view, questions regarding site design on mobile should be tagged with [responsive-design] instead. For questions about the (deprecated) mobile apps, use the [android-app] and the [ios-app] tags instead.
