Consider removing mobile-details mode from Special:Homepage
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Our first pass at mobile support for Special:Homepage involved using subpages, in the format Special:Homepage/{moduleName}, and these modules were all rendered on the server-side, not requiring any JavaScript to load.

Then we switched to using the mobile overlays provided by MobileFrontend / Minerva to offer a smoother experience to mobile users: Special:Homepage#/homepage/{moduleName}

Since then we have largely focused on the latter (mobile overlay) and fairly little on mobile detail.

This task would involve:

  1. checking to see how many mobile-detail events we are recording in proportion to the overall number of mobile events
  2. deciding if we want to keep supporting the mobile-detail view
