    All,

    For those who browse the forums on an iPad (or iPhone) now being presented with the mobile version of the TSO web page, there is a cure. As the TSO web page now detects your browser ID (UserAgent) of a mobile device, you need to move away from the native browser (Safari) to force the real web page.

    My recommended browser, iCab Mobile. Once installed, manually set your browser ID and then revisit the TSO forums to be presented the real web page.

    Hope this helps!

    I tried Chrome and was still presented with the mobile page. Is there a setting in the Chrome app for iPad that I overlooked?
