    As of today Facebook has decided to switch to it's mobile version of the site on the iPad with safari, which is HORRIBLE.
    Does anybody know how I can switch back to the regular view (without switching to a different browser)

    Cheers

    At the bottom of the "More" menu, select the "Desktop Site" link

    Try some of the apps that are in the market. I use Friendly and do what I need.

    If you mean like share a YouTube or website link, you still do it the old fashioned way, Friendly is just a very good app for using Facebook. You can upload photos and such from it but online content is still done like now on the Ipad

    If you prefer the web version of anything there is a way to put an icon on the home screen to go to the web site with one touch. When at the web site touch the arrow out of the box icon. It offers the choice of putting it on the home screen, then just touch the icon on the home screen when you want to go there.

    The text on the ipad app will be larger and the ui completely redesigned.
