Well, I think I did say it starts out turgid and impenetrable, you know?
Jeff’s second point gives you a nice little hack. Every web browser passes a “user-agent” value to the web server. Right now mine says “firefox on windows 7”, or words to that effect, because I’m at work supposedly working (which means I’ll have to stay late again if I don’t finish this post right quick). If I was at home it’d probably say “firefox on ubuntu linux”.
Because the introduction of “smart phones” and their ilk has done disgusting things to the state of standardization on the Internet, regressing us back to the bad old days of the browser wars, web sites now produce completely separate pages depending on the user-agent value they see. So iPhones see a page optimized for pretentious artists in bad turtlenecks, linux systems see a page optimized for near-autistic neckbeards living in their mothers’ basements, and Windows systems see a page optimized for self-centered corporate drones who never turn off their computers. Etc, add bigoted caricatures as desired.
If you are running either firefox or chrome you can load a free extension (search for “user agent” in the add-on store) and purposefully change your user-agent to say “I am an iPad running Safari” or whatever the hell iPads run, or “I am a Nexus 7 tablet running Android with something vaguely like chrome”. The more user-friendly user agent switchers will present this fairly intuitively, you just click on a button; and the more powerful ones will let you enter anything you want which is usually less than useful (fun for supergeeks though).
So you can grab a free user agent switcher for a free browser and take a look at what the site shows to people with different hardware than you, and if you like it better you can use that version instead. Bonus, the iPad version might support multitouch if your keyboard incorporates a synaptics touchpad (I dunno, don’t count on it).
