MP News: most pages redesigned to be mobile-friendly

As recently as 2010, the percent of MP page views coming from mobile phones was negligible. Now it's up to 20% and growing fast, despite the fact that the site is borderline unusable on the tiny screens.

We've changed most (but not all) pages so that they are at least a bit easier to use on a phone screen. It's a hybrid "responsive design" that should keep pages looking normal on a computer, but less squashed on a phone. Pages should also load faster (though we're talking about half a second or so). This required major changes to our 8-year-old layout code, and I expect there will be many formatting bugs!

If you see a problem, please report it here, along with the device type (Windows/Mac computer, iOS, Android) AND the browser (Firefox, Chrome, IE, etc), and a screenshot of the problem if possible.

I noticed that with the new left/right arrows you can no longer click on a photo to enlarge it. Instead you have to click on the "View full size" link below the photo.

Right edge of some pages like destinations (…) gets chopped, ive also seen it in some forum threads.
Android with native browser.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
