    Lately when I go to certain websites such as Facebook or Accuweather, it appears as though I am getting the mobile versions of the sites or I am prompted to download the mobile app. An ideas why?

    You're probably using User Agent Switching, which makes websites think your browser is a different browser on a different platform. Yours is probably set to iPhone 1.1.3.

    Happens in Camino, Safari, and FF. What's User Agent Switching? Sorry, Mac newbie here....

    You might be running into websites that are detecting a WebKit-enabled browser, but not checking the screensize too. So it's seeing your Safari but not also seeing that you're running on a Mac and not an iPhone. Just send a message about it through whatever website feedback they use, and it'll get sorted out.
