Can you please add an option to always request the desktop version of sites, specially on Wi-Fi only tablets like the Nexus 10.

I don't know if it's sites or Chrome but even after I manually request the desktop version of some sites, like dlisted.com, when I go back to that site it loads the mobile version.

(Also, please do something about the spam that's starting to appear on this blog's comments.)

HEY, STOP THE "WIDE VIEWPORT" FOR TABLET !!!

WE WISH PC VIEW !!

UN INSTAL !!!

The Mozilla Firefox for Android via add-on "Desktop Mode" offers :

A) STOP "Viewport" - disable the 980 pixels viewport. On a 160 dpi tablet, the resultant web page will be exactly like using the desktop version of Firefox. No more blurry lines.

B)Request Desktop Site by default

Yeaaa MOZILLA FIREFOX ! WITH FLASH!

Developers,can you add extensions to Chrome Beta on Android?

It lags and swaps as hell, but you want more functionality. They should first bring it to proper performance level.
