Nowadays, most website developers seem devoted to making mobile-responsive websites. But, still, the mobile version of the few websites doesn’t offer the functionality you expect. Therefore, almost all web browsers have begun offering desktop site view features; Samsung Internet is no exception.

Samsung Internet enables you to get the functionality of the website’s desktop version on your Android smartphone.

Some websites don’t do well on mobile because they are trimmed down to speed up the web page’s loading time. I prefer to use my mobile browser to enjoy Facebook, but whenever I try to change the privacy settings or want to manage my friend list.

But not every time and everywhere I can access my computer every day, so I have come across several articles and got to know Samsung Internet’s desktop site view feature.
