It's actually not hard to do. Open your browser and type about:debug in the address bar. Then go into settings and you should find a tab labelled Debug. Choose that, then select the item named UA. From there select either Desktop or iPad. Once you've done that enter about:debug in the address bar and you're done.

I hate to say this, but your best bet is going to be using another browser - most people seem to recommend Dolphin HD the highest (I recommend it too). It has a setting that allows you to change the way pages render unlike the default browser.

Dolphin HD has an addon that loads on the right of the browser that allows you to toggle between desktop and mobile views it seems to work very well
