If the site detects the User Agent to be "Android" it will display the mobile view if one is available.

If you download the Steel browser from the Market, you can change which User Agent to send (ie. Desktop) and it would always view as if you were sitting on your computer.

Don't currently have it installed, but its in the options somewhere under User Agent or UA or something similar.

You know you found it when the options are: Android, Desktop, iPhone.

How good of a browser is steel? comparable to the current droid browser or better-besides the UA

I used to use it because of the Zoom feature and while trying to diagnose a problem with my personal website.

I think its very, very good and has TONS of options.

Give it a shot -- if you don't like it just uninstall it.
