still asks if you want to read mobile


Just took this screenshot with my Android smartphone (up-to-date version). notices that I am using a Smartphone to look at it and is still asking me if I really want to use the mobile view. This was common a few years ago. Still I do not know why this even was a thing.

One of the most common plus points of mobile views for websites is the decreased size to load faster. Thanks to, you have to load the website two times.

But I am still really curious about why the website notices that the user is using a smartphone to look at the website and still loads the desktop version with an option to switch over to a view for smartphones. Every technology is there, they just do not redirect to the mobile page, but instead implemented something completely new. Even neglecting the technological part, this is a logical disaster.
