Default How do I browse full web pages?

Just switched from HTC Desire to Samsung Galaxy Note.

I can't find any settings on the web broswer to display "full" web pages instead of mobile version.... please tell me I can do this?!

Or do I need another web browser? If so, which is best ?

Many thanks

You can change the user agent for the default browser but that will have to be done everytime you restart the browser.
I personally use "Dolphine Browser HD", its the best!!! Just choose your user agent when installing as "desktop" and then it will remain that way always.

I use Opera Mobile, it also has a UA selection option so you can have persistent desktop UA and browsing. Either that or Dolphin are good options.

Thanks guys I am trying both of these. ...

Another thing I miss about my HTC Web Browser is that it resized the text to fit the screen.
I wonder is there any way of getting hold of the HTC Web Browser?

PS This is the only negative I have regarding the Note, everything else rocks!

The dolphin browser does text re-flowing I believe though it may be a plugin.

Default Home Page

Hi All,

I've recently upgraded from an HTC Desire to the Note as well, and unless I'm being completely blind, there doesn't seem to be a HOME button in the stock browser either?
