    Native browser - stopped redirecting to mobile wiki

    I know a lot of people hate this feature, but i like the mobile version of wikipedia. until yesterday whenever I'd navigate to a wikipedia entry i would be auto redirected to the mobile version. i noticed this is happening on my wife's droid as well. anyone else?

    I've cleared cache, history, etc.

    and no, we did not select the 'disable mobile version' setting.

    Its usually the website itself that redirects you based on the browsing client you're using. Maybe they're having a problem, or are working on their mobile site at the moment.

    That was my thought as well. Wasn't sure if others were experiencing this too.

    i noticed this today too. not sure which way i liked better. i liked the formatting of the mobile version, i just hated expanding the boxes.

    In the meantime, you can always check out the Wikimobile app on the market. The UI is a little different, but it works well.
