This extension toggles a website's view to its mobile version if the server supports a mobile-friendly option. Please note that this change is temporary, and you can return to the default desktop view by clicking the action button once more. Additionally, you can select different devices, such as Android, iOS, and Kindle, from the right-click context menu. The user-agent string for each device can be configured on the options page.

Important Points:

  1. To revert to the regular mode, click the browser's action button.
  2. To switch between view modes, use the right-click context menu options.
  3. Some websites employ distinct URLs for their mobile-friendly versions, often redirecting users to the mobile version (e.g., en.wikipedia.org => en.m.wikipedia.org). In such cases, even after a refresh, you will remain on the mobile-friendly hostname. Be sure to correct the address in the address bar before refreshing the page.
