    Is it possible to change mobile Safari's user agent string so it pretends to be normal Safari (for mac or windows) ?

    So you can view the regular website rather than the mobile version.

    With the iPad's big screen it's sometimes annoying to get the restricted version.
    Makes drilling down harder.

    Lol, /facepalm

    This would be worth having for any site that forces the mobile version.

    And so what you can change the user agent in atomic. You can't use the file downloader plugin, and you can't use frash.

    Go over to Tacobell.com and try to view the normal site.

    Whoops, looks like it does! Guess I'll be using atomic for just about everything now as long as it stops crashing.
