    Default websites with choice of mobile skin or desktop skin

    Hardware: Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 model GT-N8010
    OS: Android ver. 4.1.2
    Dolphin ver. 10.2.2

    Problem: Some websites present a choice of mobile skin or desktop skin. Some of these allow you the choice to switch between one and the other (ie the BBC news website in UK).
    But some do not seem to provide the choice, but rather auto-detect your hardware when you handshake with the website, and present the skin which *it* feels is most appropriate. Example is
    BBO Discussion Forums
    In this example case it presents the mobile skin to a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 configured as above, but I would rather have the choice, and indeed to exercise that choice in favour of the desktop skin.
    Is there an app or a Dolphin add-on that I can download to simulate that the machine is a desktop when accessing such websites?
    It is not just Dolphin that presents the problem. I get the same if I use Chrome or Safari, so this may be the wrong forum for the question.

    OK Solved.
    Dolphin add-on allows the switch.
    Shame that you cannot personalise its behaviour by website, though.
