How do mobile sites know when I'm about to tap a link, and then load something and shift everything so that I tap the wrong link?

    They only allow 3 buttons at any given moment on your screen and they then use the Monty hall problem to always guess the exact one you are going to pick

    Serious answer from someone who makes apps for newspapers.

    Ads, it's always the f*cking ads. Badly written javascript widgets that load slower than honey in a blizzard

    @jaeder42 but their timing is impeccable; have any of the ad services you worked with displayed signs of precognition?

    It's usually the stupid 300ms click delay mobile browser impiliment that fuck that up.

    My personal take is that they probably intentionally delay the loading of the certain contents in the page. Probably some setTimeOut() work going on. I don't think something too sophisticated is being used for this..
