    Is there anyway to have the desktop site by default?

    Everytime I open on my phone it always loads mobile site.

    I would like to load the desktop site without scrolling to the bottom everytime.

    Thanks.

    Hmmm... There has to be a way. But right now responsive web sites have some bit of code that looks at the browsing device screen size reported and then chooses the best way to display the web page.

    There are no common usage 'checks' currently available to let the web site know if it should display as full or as the designer intended. Well, let me clarify that, none that I know of.

    Surely we could come up with something.

    I take issue with your use of the word "best" :)

    I find web sites which figure out that I am on an iPad and muck about with the display/controls annoying in the extreme. The ones that prevent me from zooming the display (so I can read it!) are immediately blacklisted.

    I completely agree. Just because you can, doesn't mean you NEED to screw with user's workflows. I have seen some horrible examples ( and created a few ) of responsive websites. I've also seen it done extremely well.
