    Is there a way to make your browser view in desktop mode?

    I don't know what browser the Razr comes with but there should be a setting where you can change the Ul. If there isn't then you'll have to download another browser that has that feature. Many browsers in the market have that option. I'm using Maxthon right now and it has it.

    I haven't seen an option on the stock browser, but I am using Dolphin HD and just changed the settings to always view in desktop

    Yes, I agree with MysticalDreams. Dolphin HD does this quite easily.

    In your browser address bar, type about:debug. Nothing will happen as far as you can tell but go to your settings in the browser and go all the way to the bottom. I cant remember what it says but the drop down menu will give you the option to change to desktop mode. When your done, do the about:debug thing again and it will hide the options again. Im not sure if its ok to leave it in debug mode.

    Thank You so much!! I use Dolphin so it wasn't a problem for me. but my friends don't and they are always complaining because some sites we all frequent can't be viewed in mobile.

    I recommend GoLauncherEx. Don't need to DL an additional browser that may suck system resources.

    Golauncher is a 3rd party app taking up resources ....

    Depending on what website you are on, it might have an option for Viewing in Desktop Mode (i.e. Google, YouTube). You could always try a different web browser from the Google Play Store.

    Both dolphin browser and boat browser have a setting to open web pages in desktop mode. They are free and you can dl from play. I prefer boat browser bc it did not big down my d1 like dolphin did.

    Desktop mode is a stock option with ICS on my Xoom. Hopefully the phone version is similar.
