full website access

Is there a setting with android to automatically go to the full website in the browser instead of voing to the mobile site? There was on my TP2, but I can't find it on my droidx. In many cases I can't ever get to the full website. I click on their link to go to it, but it just refreshes the mobile site. With phones this powerful I don't want to be stuck using the handicapped mobile sites.

Thanks for any feedback.

I don't have that option in browser settings. Do I have to root to get it?

Re: full website access

+1 on Dolphin..

also Skyfire has a button you just press to switch between mobile and desktop.. (half droid/half com screen icon, gives you a pop up for android, desktop, or auto[i think])

Re: full website access

Type "about:debug" in the browser text box and the option for UAString should show up in settings. Then switch the UAString to "desktop".

Re: full website access

Full website access is not an option under my broswer settings. However, it seems that every site I have been to that has a mobile site, has a link at the bottom for the "full website" version.

Check my post above... never mind, here it is:

Type "about:debug" in the browser text box and the option for UAString should show up in settings. Then switch the UAString to "desktop".

Also, uncheck "Enable Mobile View" in settings.

I typed about:debug it in the URL bar and nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?
