Yes, as rare as it sounds, I'm looking forward to have one of my browsers (Safari, Chrome, Firefox, another one maybe?) loading everything in the mobile version.

Why? I'm kinda trying to get used to the new things inside El Capitan and I'm thinking of this (see attachment). Wouldn't it be better a mobile-sized version of EVERYTHING there?

Can I make Safari, or any other browser, load everything as if I were on a smartphone/tablet?

Thank you very mucho

Well yeah. This is a good point.
But, some sites detect browser type and refuse to change to mobile site once you browse it on an desktop browser.
Maybe chrome can do this with Those extensions and plugins .

Safari has no persistent setting for the user agent and as far as I know it isn't possible through extensions. Maybe there are plugins, but this is something you might want to use another browser for. I know for a fact that Chrome has extensions that do this.
