New Mobile browsing option | Mobile skin

We have a new browsing option to view the site while on mobile devices.

As you know the forum has a mobile app that you can download and use for mobile browsing but we now have a second option as well, with no download needed. There is a new mobile view that you can select or unselect.

When you navigate to the site on a mobile device you should see the new mobile skin (unless you are using the mobile app). If you don't have the app loaded on your device you will receive the prompt to download it - you can just dismiss the prompt and continue on to the mobile skin.

If you want to see the full site instead, you can scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page and there is a link to return to the full site view. The mobile skin is a great option for a small screen and designed to be fast and light. Not every feature of the full site is supported but for daily browsing and posting it should be awesome.

If you are browsing on a large tablet you may not see the mobile skin automatically but again can scroll down to the bottom of the page and select the mobile skin from the style chooser option box (lower left).

I like it. Loads fast on my Android phone and is easy to read. I like the New Posts link as that is how I read the forum. Is there room for a link to mark all read?

I use Google Chrome to view AirForums Web pages; and a day or two ago, this site changed. There are now lots more ads embedded between posts and in the right margin; and the overall appearance, look and feel have changed.

Also, the first post in this thread has a JPEG with "Default vBulletin 3" listed as an option under "Quick Style Chooser". I do not have this option on my screen, and I think that was what was previously selected.

Was "Default vBulletin 3" deleted, or has something else changed on this site?

Follow-up:

Pop-up ads and animations are severely slowing AirForums.com load and refresh times. I am now getting Google Chrome time-out messages, and screens must be aborted.

The recent changes that added more advertising and animated ads have created such long delays to this site that it is now extremely cumbersome to navigate.

Is anyone checking on this?

Have others complained?
