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'.
I did find that second option, and set the "always request desktop", but I wasn't aware of the ability to do it on a site-by-site basis. I'll give that a look as well.

All we get is plain vanilla text on our prime now. When can we get those kind of functions on our Prime?

Anyone know? Anyone know of an app or other options that are out there to do that sort of thing?
You do get those options when you request the desktop site. You can also use the yahoo mail ap, which I really like and use on my phone.
