How to view pages in "Desktop mode" with the default Samsung Galaxy S2 browser
Firstly you need to open the browser then press the phone's menu button and then select the "more" option from the contextual menu. This will open a long list of options as you can see on the right hand side. The option you need to select is "Settings" is near the bottom. When you select the "Settings" menu you will open a screen like the one on the left, you need to scroll to the very bottom of this to find "View mode".
In view mode you will need to select the desktop option and then, every page you load should load in the the more normal "Desktop" mode that you will be used to if you have used the website on your computer or laptop. An example of this is the BBC's website that is
on show to the left here in it's "Desktop" mode instead of the very ugly and unimpressive mobile mode.
Whilst this hasn't been completely tested by myself it did, by default, load the desktop versions of BBC, Gmail, Google and Gamefaqs as opposed to their mobile sites. If you prefer the desktop versions of websites, even on your mobile, this would seem like the best option for now, especially if you like the default browser.
