Post Mobile browsing 
I have now implemented a system whereby you can assign the name of your mobile device in your profile. What will happen then, is that the website will test and see if it finds that word in the browser identifier string (known as browser user agent). Every browser identifies itself, so it is a matter of finding a unique word in that browser identifier string that your mobile browser transmits. I.e "iPhone", "BlackBerry", "Nokia", or "Android". It is very important not to be too specific, but rather to find a unique word. The testing system is case sensitive, so "iphone" won't work, but "iPhone" will.

What then happens is that a light-weight template will be presented to your device. I have tested this on an iPhone and it does execute faster. If you want to check your browser's identifier string with your mobile device, you can do so here. The idea is that your mobile device will always get the light weight template (as long as you're logged in), and your regular computer will get the normal template.

Let me know how you get on.

Awesome!! I hope a lot of people will use this. I have just done some more testing on my iPhone and it IS markedly faster. Also, if someone has a mobile device but want the full monty template, simply leave that profile field empty.
