    More and more I find that the iPad diverts to mobile versions of web sites.

    Is there way to turn the "feature" off?

    Thanks.

    Heh Heh

    Yes!


    Just use a different browser, I have a dozen on the iPad -why don't you?

    Some are much faster than Safari.
    Others can make web sites believe you are hitting them from dozens of different kinds of desktop browsers just like a sophisticated desktop browser with user options.

    Ad blocking?

    My 64GB iPad has currently 900 apps in 24 GB!

    It is 4phun with 900 apps

    I swore I would never have anymore than I can use on a regular basis. But I just counted 97 apps including the 12 that came with the iPad. I would admit that I have 22 apps in a reject folder that I keep to remind me that I bought them but they were not as I expected.

    It is not a feature you can "turn off". The version of Safari that comes with the iPad has what is called a "user agent" that tells the website what kind of device you are using. This is why I use the Atomic browser. You can change it to where the websites think you are using a non-mobile version of Safari, Firefox or Internet Explorer.
