Several years ago, C:Amie had released several versions of Mobile Internet Favourites, a selection of bookmarks for Handheld PC that were specifically formatted for low bandwidth/resolution devices.

I was wondering if we should collect ideas for C:Amie to possibly see if it's okay to release a version 1.10 with what new items we'd like to have included.
Obviously, the requirement would have to be that the websites actually work on Windows CE out of the box.
(I don't want to add to C:Amie's workload, nor am I sure if this is a good idea or not)
My inspiration for the idea I credit to I dunk for bananas, who made a comment on if any of those websites hold up in 2023.

I tested all of the 1.09 websites and only MSN Mobile UK, Amazon Mobile, MSN US work.

Cool idea. I would definitely have a few to add to the list. Maybe we could just post the links in this thread and you could compile them all into the first post and then go from there? I would suggest that in the modern era, the criteria should be primarily no SSL required (rather than specially formatted for display on HPCs like the first time around). Thoughts?

I wouldn’t want to step on C:Amie’s toes. It’s still just a suggestion. With his approval, yes I’d like of course run with it. So for now, we can discuss our ideas of sites that we’d perhaps like

I have no problem re-releasing it. Suggest away.

There is also a Handheld PC Internert Favourites, in case anyone wants to suggest for updating that one too.

Also +10 points for torch for using the English spelling of Favourites

Yes! I support those in Mobile Internet Favourites!

Let's have a goal of submitting the new version in two weeks so everyone has a chance to add something?
