    [How To] Disable mobile sites in stock browser

    This will allow your browser to always default to desktop sites instead of mobile sites. Keep in mind you may run across a site from time to time that will still go to the mobile version. But most should default to the desktop version.

    • Open stock browser
    • In the URL window type about:debug
    • Click the menu softkey
    • Click more
    • Click settings
    • Scroll to the bottom of the list and hit UAString
    • Click desktop


    Done

    To my knowledge I don't think Opera has an option built in to do so. Here's a link to the Opera mobile guide: Guide to using Opera for phones

    I am brand new to owning my droid razr and the forum. What is the purpose of disabling mobile sites? I am just wondering if it is something I want or need to do? Thank You.

    It's not something you need to do. It is preference. Desktop sites tend to be layed out like you would see them on a computer. Mobile sites are often condensed and made to look better on a phone and function a bit better.

    Cool Garemlin, thanks for the tip. I use Dolphin, it has a handy Add-On to switch between Desktop and Mobile mode on the fly. Just swipe left from any screen to uncover the Add-Ons page and tap on the switch.
    Droid Turbo
    32Gb, Metallic Black
    Cimo Wave Slim TPU Soft Case Black


    Razr M Rooted
    16Gb PNY Class 10 Micro SDHC
    Fosmon DURA S Series TPU Case Black
    Miztech MZ 521 PDA Leather Holster



    Life is too short to own a boring phone...
