Yiibu - About this site...
"The site is designed using the ‘mobile first’ principle. Also incorporated are elements of responsive design.

The base content and default presentation are mobile, and optimized for the very simplest devices first. We've defined this as 'basic' support.

Devices with small screens and media query support are served an enhanced layout—and occasionally—more complex content. We've called this 'mobile'.

Finally, the layout and content are enhanced to reflect the 'desktop' context.

On the first visit, the server checks for a 'properties' cookie containing specific browser 'feature support' results (obtained from tests carried out by a little bit of JavaScript). Devices that don't supply a 'properties' cookie, or have JavaScript disabled are always served the basic version of the site."

Stop! You are doing mobile wrong! | Metal Toad Media
"For as long as mobile sites have been around the conventional wisdom has been: build your website first and then create a mobile site as an add-on; creating a distilled, streamlined version of the desktop site. This makes sense, no? A few weeks ago I discovered that we've been doing it wrong*. Here's why:

Mobile devices will outpace traditional computers.
Devices with fewer capabilities need to be the default.
There is no mobile…"
