This happens in FF on Android as well.
A major reason we selected Discourse is that it’s so well-architected, that it works well in lower-bandwidth regions like Sub-Saharan Africa and India (where everything else really sucks in comparison). Those places don’t have significant iOS penetration though.
Also, I’m not really comfortable telling my users to change browsers. Feels a bit like “this webpage has been optimised for IE6.”
This is true on a lot of Androids as well. Even my old S4 has a Retina-res screen and hardware buttons. Still, my UI looks like the BB screenshot above.
It looks like iOS compose doesn’t have the extra drop-downs and also uses a smaller font. Is that possible on other browsers too?
I like that this creates an even Discourse experience across platforms. No second-class users.
Aside from creating parity with iOS, fullscreen seems appropriate since quote reply also doesn’t work on FF/Android and thus, one of the major use cases of a floating compose window isn’t used anyway.
It gives everyone room to write and elaborate - that’s the big idea with Discourse right?
