    I've noticed some sites have limited mobile versions (like treocentral). However they don't have a mobile address (unlike treocentral), instead Blazer just goes to the mobile version. Normaly this is fine, but sometimes I want the full version. How can I force Blazer to select the full site instead of its mobile version.

    I hope this makes sense.

    I don't know the answer, but I am hoping with 3G bandwidth and better display technologu (no more bloody 240x240 screens!) that we can all load te full versions of web-sites and drop these mobile versions.

    I like what I saw in the iPhone demo.

    Actually I *do* have an answer. Use PIEPlus. It allows you to change your browser header to IE6 or Mozilla. If you do that then the web-site can't tell that you are a mobile browser.

    Thanks but I'm on POS: 700p. But I guess you did answer one question. This sort of behavior is determined by the site, not the browser, is that correct?

    The site looks at the user agent (or something like that) given by the browser and decides which version of the site to give. On WM, this can be fixed with third party programs (like PIEplus) or registry edits, but I don't know how to fix it on PalmOS. It does get annoying when I look for a program on google, but can't even download the prc file because google's mbile site won't let me.

    if you go to http://www.skweezer.net/ while using blazer, and type in nytimes.com in the box... the nytimes website wont see blazer as a mobile browser, and it will load the regular version on the nytimes website...

    That's pretty cool actually and it does load the full page. I tried setting up favorites and it was a drag; you have to manually login each time you want to go to a bookmark. But for those websites that don't play nice with Blazer, this could be the trick.

    Does this work like Opera, downloading to a central server and then compressing before bouncing it to you? It's pretty fast.
