How to set my browser to desktop view only? I'd like to avoid websites from showing the mobile versions? Is there a way to force the desktop view?

Not sure how / if you can do this with Safari on iPhone/iPad. However there is an app called Atomic Web Browser that lets you set the default page load type to full

I was also referring to mobile site as far as speed goes. I thought Atomic was the best of those I tried.

Personally, I use very few mobile sites. I like desktop versions.

Me too. I have an iPhone so I don't have to use mobile sites.

My gripe with 3rd party browsers is that without a jailbreak - there is no way to make them the default browser on the iPad. This means that when you open a link from and app/email/etc, it will pull up in Safari and not the third party Browser.
