With touch screen phones becoming more prevalent, it looks like more web sites are optimizing their sites for mobile use. There's no surprise with how touch screen enabled devices offers users an easier way of navigating. Facebook in particular has just launched a new homepage for those who are accessing it on a touch screen phone as opposed to downloading a dedicated app. Devices like the iPhone and HTC Hero are getting the new fitted look that enables users to use a tabbed system to access their home page, profile, friends, and inbox. Not all platforms are getting the special treatment right now; specifically WebOS, Palm OS, and S60 – but you can still access it via the specific link
. So if you don't want to busy yourself with having to download their app for your specific platform, then this might make for a tolerable substitution.
