    Default What browsers offer sticky "Desktop View" setting?

    SO, what browsers are available that allow setting User Agent string sticky (not every time you launch)?

    I've been using Dolphin, also ICS Browser+. ICS Browser+ doesn't work in Jelly Bean, so that only leaves Dolphin. I gather from reading the owner's manual that the Desktop View check box is not sticky (in the stock browser), you have to manually set it for each site. Why would anyone buy such amazing devices as the latest smartphones just to browse the dumbed-down mobile sites????

    Last I looked, Firefox and Chrome both lack this obvious feature. Are there any others out there that have a User Agent setting?

    (I've also posted this on xda, really looking for feedback on this question!!!).

    Thanks, Bob Graham

    I thought Maxthon also had a sticky desktop mode. Opera should as well.
