Another sign that the mobile Web is really going mainstream: The Drudge Report now has a mobile Web site. What's next?Matt Drudge, ur-blogger and meta-aggregator of the Web, has launched a mobile version of his popular site, Drudge Report, called iDrudge Report. This is yet another indicator that the mobile Web is becoming a mainstream part of people's online lives.

The Drudge Report has been notable as an online trend setter. Started in 1996, Matt Drudge initially distributed his Report as an e-mail newsletter. He first launched his site in 1997 as a supplement to the e-newsletter, but Drudge eventually stopped the e-mail version and published exclusively through the site.

The Drudge Report has been credited with setting or accelerating numerous online media trends, including online content aggregation and blogging.

Is Drudge's new mobile site a sign of the times? What do you think?
