    download Dolphin Browser. go into settings, change User Agent to Desktop.

    i don't think you can change that in the default browser.

    This is correct.

    In order to display the desktop version of the site the User Agent must be changed. Currently the stock browser does not allow for this to be changed, but Dolphin and Steel allow this. It just changes what device the site thinks you are using.

    Yes, but a lot of times the mobile sites will have a link to go to the main site. From there it WILL load the main site. Check the bottom of the mobile websites and see if it is there. I know fox sports has this option so maybe all their sites do.
