Mobile Web Viewport META Tag

Past few days i was tying to develop a mobile FB app for Android and Iphone.The hardest part in this application i feel is The UI . I spend almost 3 days to get the UI work proper. First i Used jQuery mobile Frame work; the frame work is cool but the documentation is very poor. $.mobile.ajaxEnabled function is never going to work.finaly i edit the source code and changed the ajaxEnabled=true to false :) . The next issue was the page size it render in different size in different browsers. an that was the hard part for me i don't see any solutions in jquery mobile site. after gogling an hour i fond a solution in mozilla web site . This will make jquery mobile full page and proper size.

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1">
