I want to watch streams of a TV channel. That channel also offers an unfree app to do that.

When I visit the site with my tablet I am forced to download the app to use the site. From my PC I can access the site normally.

How can I set my tablet browser to behave as a PC browser?

I tried the default Android and Chrome browsers.

In case of Android browser (AOSP) and Chrome there is an option called Request desktop site. This can be accessed via the options menu for the browser. That would change the browser user-agent to desktop and display the website as displayed on PC.

But this has to be done for each tab I believe, there is no permanent solution.
