In the STOCK ICS browser you click on your browser settings (those three little squares at the top right hand corner) and in there you can put a 'check' in the "Request desktop site" option. You will then get the desktop version of that website.

Now, also have another option. IF you always want to view the 'desktop' site version of any website...then do this: Go into your (stock) browser settings (same as before) by clicking (or tapping) on the three little squares (top right corner) and go all the way down to the bottom and click (tap) on 'Settings', then click on 'Advanced' and then go down the list near the bottom and you will see "Always request desktop site". Click on (put a check) the box at the end. Voila ! Your done !!!
Now your (stock) browser will ALWAYS try to locate and download the 'desktop' version of the website.

If I've helped then please take a moment to send a 'Thanks'.
