For unknown reason, I can't post the question in this thread, no matter how many time I tried;
https://theadminzone.com/threads/piwik-is-now-on-discourse.137857/

Either a bug or that certain users are unable to post on certain sections. In any case, I'll just post my question here:

Jeff and the team at Discourse are doing an amazing job at getting a lot of "big" companies / opensource projects to move to Discourse.
tomk How do they handle the problem with Android?
Can you link me to a couple of Discourse forums that open fast on Android?

Yea, not sure they can fix it, they need Android to stop being retarded.

Thus my question, how does these big boards cope with the issue?
I like Discourse and had tested it with the intend to use it.
But then I found out about this after searching for the answer why it load slow on my Android.
Kinda defeat the point of Discourse itself which should be mobile friendly.
And I'm not going to touch Apple product ever, I just dislike the company.

It is slower on Android, but still usable for me.

Not sure if they can fix it, or what the plan is. Obviously it isn't stopping the adoption, which I'm sure has a lot to do with Jeff's success with his previous projects, and a lot of it has to do with the product. The more I use it, the more I like using it.

It's not slow, it's super slow compared to other scripts.
That's why it's a mystery to me why big boards are converting to it.
