Change the user agent string on iOS Safari
Authored by: skeeks on Mar 23, '12 10:14:51AM

There's an easier way to do this, just install Atomic Web Browser and change the user string. You can set it as Mobile Safari (Default), Safari desktop, Firefox, Explorer or Wap Device; you can even select some specific versions. If you need the function spend some money and don't mess with your backup files. As I mention before, you have to get the payed version, but is only 0.99 and have some other handy functions.
I use this when a mobile site is underdeveloped and basically useless. Anyway, sometimes, the websites are so bloated that Atomic Web becomes very slow, I believe that the same thing would happen with Safari.

I have enough apps, I don't need another one clogging my memory just because I want to view the desktop version of a web page. This hack is excellent.

This hack involves downloading another app, if you read the blog post.

I use the Atomic Web Browser as well. Works great, has a full screen mode, can import Safari's bookmarks and you can use it when set as Desktop Safari to access icloud.com.
