It allows me to have the AndroidForums desktop experience, ad-free, while on the go.

When I need to log in to AF or use a different site that requires java I toggle it back on. I generally forget to turn it off again and about have an aneurism when I come back to AF and there is that annoying tiny x again.
I HATE those.

I'll tell ya what I recently realized though. After tons of frustration with not being able to hit the X, I've found huge relief in the realization that if I just refresh the page it goes away!
Every forum should have a Phases.
