Google has announced it is adding a new feature to its search results that will indicate if a web page will have issues being viewed on certain mobile devices such as an Android smartphone or tablet.
While the vast majority of web pages can be viewed in full on a modern mobile web browser like Chrome, Google points out that some sites might still have issues viewing content when accessed by a smartphone or tablet. In particular, pages that still use Adobe Flash won't be able to be viewed in full on devices that use Android 4.1 and higher.
So now, if a person makes a search on Google, they could see a reference in the search results if a page uses Flash, with a note stating that it may not work on their device. Google says they want to encourage website creators to make pages that work on all types of devices, and that HTML5 is an example of a platform that does just that.
What do you think of this new way for Google to let mobile device users know if a page will display correctly on their browser?
