    On its own main page, promotes itself on first visit as a way to "view websites and RSS feeds faster and cheaper using your mobile device". I assumed this meant that it would work and was primarily designed to work on a web-enabled mobile phone. However, while BareSite may be useful for computer users accessing the internet through a dial-up or other slow internet connection, it seems to be something of a disappointment when it comes to doing the job it claims to do and was apparently designed to do -- for that, I would recommend Google Mobilizer ( While BareSite loads on my mobile (a Motorola RAZR) well enough, entering a web address into the appropriate field and pressing "Go" has no effect whatsoever -- and when I tried to open the preferences page, I was asked to log in but was not provided with any way to register for such. Even the Directory feature at the bottom of the page is somewhat unwieldy when you attempt to access the Top 100 Feeds.
