    What is the possibility of a desktop friendly web browser UI? The issue is that there isn't a single browser that offers a HDMI mirroring friendly UI. Opera supposedly has a tablet UI but with no access to it on almost all devices.

    Removing/disabling things like textbox zoom, popping in and out of fullscreen mode, the tab/url/button bars disappearing would be ideal. These are things that you don't see in everyday browsing with a desktop browser.

    First Image- I've attached a pic of a suggested UI. Having a "desktop/standard UI" button in the drop down menu would be a good idea as well.

    Second Image- I've come close by breaking the theme engine on xscope but still have the above mentioned issues.

    Third Image- A comparison of the first two vs Firefox 4 Desktop 2 (800x600 cropped to 800x480). When comparing current browser UI's to Firefox it's obvious that a mirroring friendly UI is needed.

    Lets try it this way. There are over 20000 downloads of HDMI mirroring software on just two devices alone. Lets assume 5% of those are possible users of a "Desktop UI" version of the browser. You are looking at 1000 potential customers. This doesn't even include devices that already have mirroring capability or devices that have been hacked to allow mirroring.
