Using mobile optimzed websites in Sidebar

Today I looked into some nice demos what to show customers about Widgets and had an little idea ...
There are many services I am using on my phone. Some are a native app but others are an optimized website which in some cases works really great in the sidebar. Here is a nice example.

here is another example for the start with a much smaller sidebar (it's optimized to float).

Nice little tip to use the Web URL that are optimized for mobile use for the sidebar :-)

I was wondering which URL you've used for the demo, I think it was mobile.bahn.de

@Christian, yes I am using http://mobile.bahn.de and have also others configured like http://iphone.tvtoday.de and http://mobile.hrs.de

There are many other mobile optimized applications and I am still testing. For normal examples I am currently also looking into Google translation services (actually for a customer who needs CRM content translation from German to English) and others.

Actually I'm more interested in how to get Skype into the sidebar :-)

This is a plugin I started because I did not want to open two windows at the same time. But it is still under heavy development.

Has anyone got any tips for displaying part of the page in the sidebar and part in a new window.

As an example, I've added { Link } to the sidebar as a panel (This is a UK Directory Site).

Lets say I want to search for Italian Restaurants in London.

When I hit the "Find" button on the form, I'd like the results to show in a new Window in the Lotus Notes client, rather than squashing everything up in the sidebar.

Nevertheless its quite useful for things like facebook.
