When I try to view "www.macnn.com", it redirects to t.macnn.com. On most ios browsers, I can at least switch it to desktop view. On Opera Mini, I can't.

I've tried seeing what happens with other Onswipe enabled websites. Some redirect as yours does, some don't. Which leads me to believe it should be possible for the macnn people to stop www from redirecting to t. I know, use another browser, and switch it manually. But I don't see why Onswipe should be the default, with any browser. It's about as bad as the "you should download our app to view our site" popups.

Responsive site layout is where it's at. Then there's no browser identification, no forcing a completely different site on your users - just rearranging existing content to fit the screen size.

They could at least make the vile thing "opt in" rather than "opt out". It shouldn't be too much to ask.

It shouldn't be ignoring user preferences again. I've passed this up to management. Thanks for pointing it out.

It's also generally cheaper than maintaining two separate sites.

It seems to remember the preferences; I just wish they would set onswipe mode to "off" as the default. It would be more user friendly that way.
