Chrome on Android - Permanent Desktop User Agent

I used to use my tablet quite sporadically to view website as there were no good browsers that really would provide me with the same experience as the desktop ones. However, once Chrome released their beta Android browser that has started to change. I'm slowly ditching my laptop and using my tablet to browse the web. Love it!

There is one little issue that I find with Chrome - it by default uses Mobile User Agent and a lot of websites redirect you to a mobile site. To mitigate that issue Google added a button in settings where you can "request desktop site". It is a good fix, however it doesn't stay permanently on and you have to do it per each site.

After some research I found an app that solves that problem - Chrome UA Switcher Lite. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.appo2.ua
