How can you get Chrome to always use the desktop version of websites? I am on a Jelly Bean tablet and I can't see any reason to use the mobile versions at all.

    From the menu? The checkbox that says 'Request desktop site'. – Morrison Chang Jul 12 '13 at 22:03

You could try adding a chrome-command-line file which causes chrome to load sites in desktop mode by default. The only way to stop this however, is to remove the file. See here

Or you could install the Chrome UA Switcher app although this requires root access so may not be suitable if you're not rooted.
