    Default now that we have FLASH...

    How do I configure the stock browser to stop automatically redirecting me to stupid MOBILE sites (example CBS Sports Mobile instead of just Sports - CBSSports.com Sports News, Fantasy Scores, Sports Video ) ...I want the full featured Flash experience!

    Yea I had the same problem, I downloaded a different browser (Dolphin Browser HD) which has a plug in that allows you to switch to desktop mode. It works, but I have some issues with its responsiveness though I'm not sure if that is the browser or Flash itself.

    Most sites offer a link to the full or desktop options.

    Sites I've tried that flash video works:
    Youtube.com
    espn3.com

    Sites where the flash video didn't work:
    Collegehumor.com
    Hulu.com (I think they have way too many flash objects)

    Watching espn3 was probably the most exciting.

    I got CBS.Com to work with Dolphin Browser HD, it wasn't the snappiest site I've ever been on but it played the videos. Comedy Central worked too.

    This works but you have to do that every time you open your browser.

    If you use Dolphin HD then just go to Settings > User Agent > Desktop for full web pages.

    Espn3 isnt working for me. Did you have to do anything special with selecting the internet provider?

    There has to be a way for this stock browser to stay in desktop mode, that's one thing I love about my wife's incredible it rarely ever goes to mobile sites.

    You need to have an ISP that has an agreement with ESPN for 3. You have to select your ISP from the list and login. I can get directly there but only when connected via WiFi on my FiOS at home.

    Skyfire is essentially the stock browser with a few nice additions, including the ability to switch the browser identity from Mobile to desktop.

    Thank you for this. You have to only do this once and the setting is remembered. This was my biggest complaint about the X. Now I have a perfect phone.

    I cant find Flash to install. Android market keeps telling me no app by that name.

    After selecting your provider a link.comes up for you to login to your ISP...after that its free sailing

    It isn't remembered. If your browser closes it resets and you have to do it over again. I just tried it. Set it to desktop, works fine. Force close the browser and the user agent setting goes back to "Android" and I'm getting mobile sites again.

    That is a shame because the default browser is lighter and performs better with flash than the more feature packed market browsers. Its worth doing when I want to visit a really flash intense site.

    I keep going back to my browser after shutting it down and I am getting the desktop websites. Plus if I click on settings the debug settings are still there for me to change anytime I want without having to type in about:debug again. I do not know why it is working for me but I can assure you it is.

    Are you actually force closing the browser? Removing it from memory? The debug settings are remembered while it is in memory. Seems to reset when it is fully unloaded.

    ESPN3 works if you connect through a college (.edu) network.
