    Default Browser question for Epic

    When browsing it always defaults to mobile view. How do you set to desktop view for all web pages? i looked in the settings and did not see a way to change this.

    also when you are on say yahoo.com and you switch to desktop view, then continue to say sports, it goes back to mobile and you must change it again to desktop. i did not have this problem on the Evo.

    Great question as I just noticed the same thing and was trying to figure it out.

    Perhaps after some wine it will come to me

    Unfortunately, the stock browser doesn't seem to have a setting for this. If this is important to you, then I would use XScope or Dolphin HD.

    Dolpjin HD is a great browser. Has an add on where you just slide the screen and pick a default mode, mobile or desktop. Skyfire has this also in it top bar.

    1) Open up Browser
    2) Type "about:debug" in the address bar (without quotes of course)
    3) Open your settings
    4) Scroll all the way to the bottom and change "UAString" to "Desktop"

    Download "dolphin HD" browser from the market. It is a great browser and it has the setting to load all real websites. Make it your default browser. It is like the stock browser but has better functionality.
