Dribbr gives you the web optimized for iPhone

I like Apple's approach of creating a browser that lets you access web pages designed for a desktop computer. But it sure gets tedious scrolling around and zooming in and out. Frankly, I've always preferred web pages optimized for mobile devices.

Many major web sites are now optimizing their sites for access via the iPhone or iPod Touch. This is so much more convenient — you get a page the perfectly fits your screen, and navigation is also facilitated. The Associated Press, the New York Times, CBS News, Accuweather, and many many more are now optimized for iPhone.

Dribbr is an iPhone optimized directory of such sites, organized into 46 categories. In addition, the directory also includes web apps and games.

You can access Dribbr via your iPhone by pointing Safari at www.dribbr.com. Here's a direct link so that you can see how it looks on your iPhone.

This is the best such directory I've found so far. Does anyone know of any others?
