    The Eris has a feature in the browser settings where you can turn off mobile site detection. There are some sites that I go to that I would rather view the regular version over the mobile one. But I have found on a few sites that it won't even let me open the regular version in the browser. It automatically opens up the m.xxx version. Any way around this???

    The setting is User Agent and I've not heard of a way to change it in the default browser. Both Steel and Dolphin browsers allow you to change that setting however. Both are free in the market. Dolphin also has multitouch pinch zoom and some fun other features.

    How different is the Dolphin browser from the included one??? Other than the obvious stated pinch and zoom. I thought about trying it but I was gonna hold out to see what new Firefox browser brings. If it ever comes out.
