Modifying BootStrap Tab Control for Extra Small Device

If you are using BootStrap and the Tab control you may have a weird rendering for Extra Small Device (under 768 pixel).
To fix this, it is possible for you to add this code. It removes the borders and remove the background.

/*For smaller device, tab control should not appear*/
@media (max-width: 767px) {
    .nav-tabs > li {
        border:1px solid #dddddd;
    .nav-tabs > > a{
    .nav > li > a:hover, .nav > li > a:focus,
    .nav > li > a:hover, .nav > li > a:focus,
    .nav-tabs > > a, .nav-tabs > > a:hover, .nav-tabs > > a:focus


The end result is much better than the default behavior and the solution is simple and clean. I hope that it helps someone.
