    Wasn't this moved into Modernizr? There's a library I haven't thought of in a long time.

    Oh, yep. There it is at the bottom:

    I guess the issue now is it has become part of the cargo cult with people including these meta tags in their base templates without knowing what it does and failing to implement a suitable layout for all mobile device screen sizes and DPIs.
