    Am I doing something wrong? Websites still look identical to previous versions. Weren't they supposed to be shown as they would appear on a regular browser? Was this feature removed in the final release?

    Never heard of this being a "feature". Formatting of the webpage for mobile browsers is up to the web developer anyways. Chrome iOS app has an option to request desktop version though. Sometimes works sometimes doesn't.

    True, but I've seen demos of certain websites (TheVerge.com for instance) displaying in desktop format on iOS 7 Safari, and now it's no longer possible.

    Unless I'm misunderstanding the question, a website can force a mobile device format. The last one that I was on had a link to their full site which is what you'll see on the desktop.

    I just looked and TheVerge has a link at the bottom for the full site.
