I didn't say that it didn't "work". I said that it's "targeted at mobile
devices". And it obviously is. Narrow. Huge typefaces. Huge images.

And worse, it doesn't even flow into multiple columns with large
windows. It all just gets bigger. Even I could hack that, and I'm no web
developer. See https://vpntesting.info/. In mobile devices, it's one
column. In desktops, it's two columns.
