inferior? You must be crazy... I think it looks way better what they did to it. No unnecessary scrolling and tabbed... and to answer your question. I don't think there is a way to go back. Its something they implement on their part. Website recognizes your iPhone and then thereforee displays it in mobile mode. Too bad.

I am not a member of facebook, but I have had a similar experience. When I first got my iPhone for a few days I could go to www.stlcardinals.com, which is the official MLB website of the Cardinals and I would get the full version. Since then it goes straight to the WAP edition.

Have you tried just clicking the "Regular Site" link at the bottom? Then bookmarking it?

Yeah I just saw that last night... could they make the link any smaller? :p I still think the iPhone layout is the best though!

no matter how i try it, i still get the iPhone version..
it's not terrible, it's just not what i want ;_;
The iPhone version doesn't show people's recent history which I like sometimes. Let me know if you figure out how to not have it force you to the iPhone version because I'm having the same problem.

When you log into the facebook mobile account, just scroll to the bottom of the page and there is a link that says, "Regular Site" just click on that and you're taken to the GOOD facebook.
