    Stock Browser Desktop Mode

    I'm having issues with Dolphin Browser force closing. I know in the stock browser there is an option to request the Desktop version of a website, but it appears you have to do it for each site. Is there a way to force the stock browser to always display the desktop version for all websites???

    Thanks

    In the URL bar in your browser, type about:debug. Click the menu button on the top right and click settings. Go down to the "debug" menu and click it. Under UAString, select desktop. Done.

    Edit: don't include the period - just "about:debug" without the quotes, obviously. Just trying to avoid confusion.

    update. Had to disable this. It shows a javascript error on the top of your screen if I enable this.

    You may wish to try ICS Browser Plus. It is an custom browser built from the stock browser source.You may wish to try ICS Browser Plus.
