    Default Mobile view instead of standard view for Yahoo

    Hey everyone, I have the following problem. When I go to yahoo.com automatically, chrome goes to:http://m.yahoo.com/?.tsrc=yahoo&mobi...ault=truewhich seems to be the smartphone version of the yahoo website. I tried to set mobile_view_default=false with no change. I tried to clear all cookies and history with no success either. If I go to other websites like nytimes, I get the standard view (not mobile).If I use Firefox, the problem disappears.Why is chrome or Yahoo think that I am using a smartphone? Any ideas?I am actually using Chromium 14.0.835.202 (Developer Build 103287 Linux) Ubuntu 11.04Julien

    sourireduclown, Yahoo apparently did a bad update to their browser detection that is redirecting ChromeOS/Linux users to their mobile site,http://www.google.cf/support/forum/p...48fda2ca&hl=en
