    Hi All:

    I have been using my a700 for several days now. So far so good. I have noticed that when I use an browser but the Acer supplied browser many web sites are treated as mobile sites. For example, when using Dolphin HD browser I have the user agent set to desktop but no joy. Has anybody else seen this? Thanks,

    Steve

    I'm using Opera without any issue. Was thinking of moving on to Firefox 14, but my experiences on 10-13 sucked....though Flash is supported now.

    It seems that this problem is limited to certain web site with certain browsers. Chrome seems to have no problem. maxthon and Dolphin have a problem with certain sites, for example, The New York Times - Breaking News, World News & Multimedia will come up as a mobile device, not desktop. I will live with it for now. Must be browser related.

    Why not just switch to Chrome of Firefox? Do you really prefer maxthon or dolphin?
