    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.

    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?

    You've got the physical <home> button :)
