    Don't you hate it when you view a website and it's the Mobile version, but you want the full Desktop page? Just follow this. You will have to do it once in a while when it goes back to Mobile view.

    Open Browser
    In the address bar type in,
    Code (Text):
    1. about:debug
    Click Enter
    Press Menu
    Select Settings
    Scroll all the way to the bottom to UAString.
    Select it and Select the Desktop Button.

    That's it. Now you will have the Desktop mode for all pages. It will stay until you completely close the Browser.

    Yeah espn.com always defaults to the mobile. I wish there was a way to keep this after we close the browser e.g. make it truly permanent

    Dolphin Browser HD has a selection if you press the menu key while viewing a page that allows you to select mobile view or not....Skyfire even has a button front and center that switches it as well
