    Disable Mobile View In Internet Browser

    Hey guys,

    Do any of you know how to disable mobile views for websites within the browser? I know some pages let you do it within their site but I would like a more global approach. I've come across a few websites that don't offer any viewing options.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    ** UPDATED: 11/21/2011 **

    It looks like the "about:debug" command works in the URL address bar. I was having issues because the tablet continued to search on Google for the term "about:debug" instead of actually accessing the page. For some reason when I pushed the small right facing triangle (the button next to the URL address bar that look like a "play" button) button the "about:debug" page was accessed properly. The page should be blank from here.

    Here are the steps in detail:

    1. Open the Android Honeycomb browser on your tablet.
    2. In the address bar, type: about:debug and press enter.
    3. Now open the browser's settings by tapping the icon in the very top-right corner of your screen (it looks like four horizontal lines) and selecting "Settings" from the drop-down menu that appears.
    4. On the left side of the screen, tap the section labeled "Debug."
    5. On the right side of the screen, tap the item labeled "UAString," then select "Desktop."
    6. Press the back button (in the very bottom-left corner of your screen) to exit the browser's settings.
    7. In the browser's address bar, type: about:debug once more; this will disable debugging mode and return the browser to its normal state.

    Most sites have a redirect at the bottom of the page. Once selected I always go back to the main site instead of the mobile

    It would be nice to change these settings without having to use another browser. The dolphin browser only allows portrait orientation. Or else I would probably use it.

    to get access to those setting options you must type in the address bar;
    about:debug
    and press returrn on the keyboard, nothing will happen but those options are then available
