You may notice, on some domains you visit, that the web address is modified with 'M', 'Mobile', even 'ipad'. Some sites provide these optimized GUI's so there is fluidity amungst different mobile platforms. Mobile internet is rapidly becomming diverse but, it has not kept up with the explosion of different devices. When you use an app, downloaded with your device, and from the appropriate location (app store for apple and Google Play for Android) you will only be given the version of the app that has an optimized API specifically for your device. Hence the two recommendations on this thread to use the app for your device. More advanced users will use different mobile browsers with 'plug ins' to work around this problem, and get the full desktop experience on their mobile device. Apple makes this more difficult with their devices because they want you to use their apps. This is apparent in Apple's closed source policy. This is also why more advanced users of mobile devices prefer Android. It is open source and may be customized at your descretion. In fact, Google encourages you to do so! This is not dendroboards fault. Good thing as they already have their fair share . o_0

Edit: this is also why Apple, Google, and even Microsoft offers updates to their operating systems. I just noticed you are running an older OS. This, again, is Apples's doing. You are limited because you have the Ipad 1. Apple is telling you to buy a newer device. It's called 'planned obsolescence'. Why do you think they seal the battery inside the device so the average user cannot replace it?
