    Depending on your ROM, some of the stock browsers have the User Agent in the settings. If not, you can type about:debug, in the URL bar, and then go into Settings. Scroll to the bottom and you should see the option "User Agent". Change it to Desktop, or w/e it is you want.

    Some 3rd party browsers have this feature installed already. Dolphin Browser/HD has it, may awnt to look into that, as it is faster than stock.
