Mobile Chow breaks permanent links

Señor Andy | Apr 11, 2009 10:00 AM

Mobile Chow (m.chow.com) is effectively useless when coming from Google search results, since no standard Chow URLs are mapped and redirected to their appropriate place. All requests to chow.com from a mobile device are redirected to the homepage of m.chow.com. Very annoying. It effectively breaks the site when coming from any permanent link anywhere.

Chow should devote a little development time and make standard URLs (the ones crawled by Google) work. I end up just viewing Google's cached page, rather than following the link to Chow, since they're effectively all dead ends.

Remember, cool URIs don't change: http://www.w3.org/Provider/Style/URI
