    Please see the subject line. I just tested and it looked to me like only Firefox where supported on wordpress.com, but maybe I am missing something.

    The blog I need help with is fromsomepsychologists.wordpress.com.


    Are you talking about for viewing public sites, or talking about the dashboard? The dashboard is not touch aware yet and it will might be a while before it is.

    WordPress has developed many Apps for the most popular smart phones: http://support.wordpress.com/apps/ .



    Just viewing sites with a web browser on a mobile device.


    Any particular mobile device? I use The Safari browser on iPad and can view wordpress.com sites. What problem are you needing to address? A variety of browsers can view WordPress.com sites.

    If you are wanting to make sure that your WordPress site is accessible through a variety of mobile devices, perhaps you would be interested in the “responsive” themes that respond to the screen size of the device being used to access the site? Check out the WordPress.com theme listing for responsive themes if so. http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/responsive-width/

    if I am misunderstanding your question, disregard my answer.



    Hm, thanks for the answers. Today I tested the site above again with four different browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Opera and the Android web browser.

    ** Result:
    Samsung Galaxy SII: All four displayed the mobile look.
    Display: 480 x 800 pixels.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0: Only Firefox displayed the mobile look.
    Display: 600 x 1024 pixels.

    The output on the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is unreadable if the mobile look is not used for this site.
