    Is there a way to trick the browser into going to full sites, not mobile versions?
    In particular, the CBSSports mobile site is godawful. Does anyone know if you can skirt around the webpage recognizing your access as a mobile/android device, and load the full webpage? Most pages have a link to "full site" on them, but CBSSports doesn't have that.

    Someone tell me there's hope...

    most sites have an option for the full site at the bottom of the page other than that if you use dolphin you can go Menu > More > Settings > user agent > DESKTOP

    I hated Dolphin when I last tried it, but this might make it a necessity. Thanks for the tip!


    *EDIT*

    Dolphin Desktop User Agent worked like a charm. Thank you!!!

    And I thought I was the only person who didn't care for Dolphin. I'm hoping Fennec will allow for this.

    I have to say, I agree with you about Dolphin...although multi-touch is nice to have.

    I was having this problem with the USPS site. I was trying to track a package (my Seidio case and cradle, actually!) and the site kept throwing me to the mobile version. I am using Dolphin, so I obviously don't know the trick to get it to take me to the right place. The problem was that the mobile.usps.com site wouldn't track my package, it just kept throwing me back to the main menu after submitting the tracking info.

    With some careful googling, I was able to find the direct link to the tracking page on the full USPS - The United States Postal Service (U.S. Postal Service) site, and loading that did not force me into the mobile version. But it was a PITA.

    Who can tell me how Dolphin can force loading the full site rather than the mobile site?

    Open up Dolphin, click droid menu button, click on more (far lower right button), click settings, click on user agent, check desktop.

    My opinion on Dolphin is the exact opposite. I've been to numerous sites, especially those that were work related where the stock browser simply didn't render the page correctly. Dolphin has NEVER let me down.
