Product Description

Desktop Browser allows your capable Android tablet and Android phone to render web sites in native desktop view. Instead of seeing mobile versions of web sites, you can quickly and easily view web pages rendered just like you can on your computer. No more limited function mobile sites if your Android device can handle it.

It's a great solution for large screen tablets where a full-featured web page can be fully rendered to take advantage of the screen resolution and estate.

You can now have fun accessing web sites built for desktop and notebook computers. Save time looking for functions that doesn't exist on mobile web sites.

For example, if you try to view FoxFi's web site with Android Browser, the web site will redirect you to Google Play (Android Market) for you to download the FoxFi app. But if you really want to get the latest information on FoxFi's web pages, you'll have to use Desktop Browser to see them.

Desktop Browser has the ability to emulate various different browsers via user agent strings: 1) Apple Safari 4; 2) Desktop Browser; 3) Mozilla Firefox 5 for Windows; 4) Google Chrome for Macintosh; 5) Google Chrome for Windows; 6) Microsoft Internet Explorer 8; 7) Opera 9 for Macintosh. Pick the one that is best for the web site you want. Switch between browser user agent strings at will. Emulation defaults to "Desktop Browser" on install; be sure to change the emulation via menu operation.

Download Desktop Browser right away to use alongside the Android Browser. You'll love the proven results.

Menu Options:

Emulate - Allows you to choose from various browser's user agent strings, which the Desktop Browser will pretend to be.

New URL - Allows you to enter a new web site link. The dialog box remembers the last URL you entered.

Edit URL - Use this option to view the URL of the current page. You can then modify the URL, or copy-and-paste it into a bookmark or into a different app.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not fully functional June 10, 2012
Verified Purchase
This program gets me closer to logging into my work website which is IE only than any other Android web browser but either tabs need to be enabled or pop up windows. A place to find documentation would be nice, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice on the tablet January 17, 2012
By E. Aine
Verified Purchase
I don't know why the web sites always force me to use the mobile site. My tablet resolution is as high as my computer. But very little information is presented on the screen. This app solves that problem. I get the full web site on my tablet. Awesome.

In addition, I was able to watch YouTube videos on my phone. Some of the videos are only for computers and censored on Android. But they played with this browser. Very pleased.

I wish it remembers the pages from session to session, instead of asking every time.
