Motorola Xoom :: Enable "desktop" Mode In Android Browser?

Dec 2, 2011

I like using the stock android browser however didn't like the fact that it defaulted to "mobile" mode when viewing certain pages.

If your interested, I found a simple solution to enable "desktop" mode on [URL]

It involves changing your browser's debug settings. I tried it and it worked!

Motorola Xoom :: With Android 3.1 Update, Is Browser Slower And Force Closed?

Jun 6, 2011

have a Xoom that is consistently force closing the browser when I visit certain javascript animation sites, including our own web site with animations.(Animations built using jquery 1.4.4 but tested on 1.6.1 as well.) These sites did not cause force closes previous to the Android 3.1 update. The issues are also occuring for our customers with Xoom tablets recently updated to Android 3.1.An example site that crashes:, we found that if we follow the instructions here for turning off OpenGL (hardware acceleration) support in the browser, force closes do not occur and javascript animations are in fact smoother and better than before!! However, Adobe Flash support is also lost if OpenGL is disabled.

Motorola Xoom :: BBC IPlayer How To Make It Run In Desktop Mode

Apr 29, 2011

Ok after some trial and error i am now able to view content on the bbc iplayer in its correct format but its a bit fidly, here is what you need to do:Firstly in your stock browser type about:debug to enable enhanced menu's. Navigate to settings, debug and UAString and change this to iPad BEFORE launching bbc.Now launch BBC/iPlayer, it will come uo slightly formatted for the ipad screen but looks tons better than the mobile version.You will not be able to play videos fro here... go back into settings, debug and change UACString to Desktop then refresh the screen and voila you have the desktop version of BBC iPlayer.My guess is the initial brower check that the bbc do incorectly identifies the device when in desktop mode and tne android page/mobile is just pants. Too many companies in bed with Apple which is why they sucessfully dominate the tablet market.

Motorola Droid Bionic :: How To View Web In Desktop Mode On Stock Android

Aug 18, 2012

For those of you who want to view websites in desktop mode on your mobile I would first recommend you just use Dolphin browser. They have an easy toggle add on that you can go back and forth between mobile and desktop modes very quickly. If you must have the stock Android browser I have a trick for you too. Open up stock browser, in the url type "about:debug" Nothing will appear to happen. Now press menu>More>Settings>(in debug area) UAString>Desktop. You may have to refresh the Page for the new settings to take effect. Now you are surfing in desktop mode!

Motorola Atrix HD :: Adding LTE Enable / Disable Mode?

Sep 9, 2012

I love my Atrix HD but one key feature that is missing is the ability to enable and disable LTE mode. By that I do not mean just turning on and off data services. Many other Android phones have the ability to select the radio band that you wish to use. It gives the owner of the product the ability to move down to 3G or Edge service if he or she wishes. As it is now we are all forced into LTE mode.

Motorola Xoom :: Connect It To A Desktop?

Jun 30, 2011

I'd like to be able to mirror my xoom screen on a desktop monitor for small group presentations at job sites. I've viewed some of the threads on hdmi to vga, hdmi to dvi and hdmi to hdmi, but am a little confused as to which is easiest. It looks like if you go with hdmi to vga you'll need some type of converter, not just a cable? If it was just a cable that would be perfect.

Motorola Xoom :: OneNote App Now Available On Android

Feb 7, 2012

While there are already a few discussions for note taking apps where OneNote is mentioned, i thought this deserved it's own title. MS finally released a working Android app which syncs with Skydrive and gives you full edit ability of OneNote content. I could not find it on the market but it is available here: [URL]

If that link gets cutout, go to the android market under a web browser and search for onenote. So far, it's working on the Xoom LTE without any issues.

Motorola Droid X2 :: Desktop View With Stock Browser?

Jun 1, 2011

Is there anyone else who prefers some sites in full desktop view ie. ESPN? The stock browser User Agent is still accessible through about:debug but most sites are still redirected to a mobile version even when "Desktop" is selected. my favorite browser wont deliver a non-mobile view unless you select the UA as I-Pad. That can't be good. Anyway....all was well on my OG Droid and now I'm about to give up on this dilemma and just install DolphinHD or something.

Motorola Xoom :: Perfect Browser For It?

May 24, 2011

I am coming to the conclusion that the perfect browser for the XOOM does not exist.Dolphin HD seems to be using the same flakey rendering as the stock browser.Skyfire is also using the same flakey engine and I believe that is because Flash won't work with anything else.Opera is extremely stable but won't allow me to post on these forums and they have removed flash support because they cannot make it work right.

Motorola Xoom 2 :: What Type Of Browser Do You Use

Feb 20, 2012

I have been trying out different types of internet browsers: the native version, opera, firefox, dolphin and skyfire.Reason being is because I am investigating the cause of the random reboots my device is facing.I've tried to reduce all settings: No bluetooth, removed syncing, no location information.Now the device is able to do most basic things and not experiencing any reboots. However as soon as I start web surfing it's just a matter of minutes before the whole tablet crashes.What web browser do you think (or know) will provide the most stable experience for the xoom 2?

Motorola Xoom :: View Desktop Webpages In 3.1 Without About:debug

May 14, 2011

An earlier post implied that 3.1 has a setting for uastring, and that about:debug is no longer needed.

I haven't been able to locate any uastring settings in browser settings or system configuration.

uastring still works, but has to be reapplied if the browser is closed, same as 3.0.1. A post elsewhere had indicated that the settings would persist until reboot.
