20 Desktop Browser Reviews

4.5 out of 5


I DO LOVE THE APP! 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

Okay when I first started using DesktopBrowser (which was years ago) it was good. I liked it. I especially liked how it really laid out the desktop format of websites on my phone screen just as if I were on a real desktop, that was the best part. I later deleted it simply because it just had to many bugs and I didn’t feel like writing you guys telling you about all the ones I had experienced ☺️. Just a week ago I went to looking for desktop browser apps and ran across this one. I was actually kind of surprised to see that after all these years DesktopBrowser had still been being taking care of. I decided to download it again, you know, just give it another shot. You guys have done outstanding work to DesktopBrowser!!! It works very well although there are still some bugs and lots of work to be done. Like for example, some websites still load the mobile version and you have to refresh the page in order for the desktop version to appear 🤦🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️.(that’s why you get a 4 star rating),Aside from that DesktopBrowser is well put together and it functions like a real desktop. Great job guys 😉👍🏽


Does what it claims

Just to be clear, this is not a great web browser. The user interface is extremely bare-bones and it is missing most of the features you would expect from a fully featured web browser. However, it excels at the one essential feature, which is to force webpages to display exactly as if they were on a desktop system. I have not found any other browser that can do this reliably. This allows me to access functionality on many webpages that is otherwise unavailable on the mobile site. It is unfortunate that in 2020 something like this is still necessary, but here we are…


The only desktop browser app I could find that works

From strictly an iOS app rating, I would give DesktopBrowser 3 stars. But, it’s the only app I could find that does what I want. It tricks almost any website into serving up the desktop version.

The most important thing that needs to be fixed is that when you pay for the upgrade, the free version should disappear. Additionally, when you open DesktopBrowser you should open straight into a browser, not a menu system. It also just needs some general design & UX work. As someone with the weird core competency that crosses between manager/programmer/designer/visionary/leader, I can see that DesktopBrowser was built fully from a coder’s mind and really needs the perspectives of some designers and visionaries.

But it does get the job done where no one else has!


This deserves 100Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have to leave a review the fact that DesktopBrowser let’s you buy it with out u having to pay $$$ every month is awesome. So many apps want you to subscribe to a subscription like how Netflix does but unlike Netflix I don’t want to be paying monthly for a dumb iPhone app. This developer lets you pay one price to unlock the whole app. That is a rarity on DesktopBrowser Store. As for DesktopBrowser itself it’s amazing how I can get the full desktop version of a website that even chrome won’t show me. DesktopBrowser is very special and has continued to always work.
-Thank you


Simple browser, does the job

Unlike the built in Safari browser where you have to “request desktop site” every time you go to a new website, this browser already does that for you.

It has a very simple and user friendly interface. The ads don’t automatically pop up, but you do need to view one before starting a browsing session.

I would like to see an incognito mode function or at least an option to tell websites to not track my information.


Such a helpful tool

I was trying to do something that can only be done on the desktop version of a website. The hotel I’m at has terrible wifi which practically doesn’t even work. Spent hours trying to get the wifi working and bugging the front desk about it. Finally accepted that it wasn’t going to work, got DesktopBrowser and www able to do what I needed to do in about 2 minutes. Hours wasted but this saved me. Super cool little tool!!! Thanks for existing!


I want to love this

Full screen browsing is hard find on iOS. This ap is close but needs refining.

Couple points: 1). It goes in and out of full screen mode way too easy. Needs to have a stickier way to remain in full screen mode. 2)any website that would launch a new tab doesn’t work then you can’t back out of it either. 3) History requires fully exiting the browser not sure why. 4). Developer doesn’t respond.

Happy to update this review if developer responds with updates.


Just what I needed!!

I don't care if the free version has ads... the ads are not even that annoying because they aren't long and all I've gotten are announcements not video ads so they're short... DesktopBrowser is all I needed... I was trying to use desktop verdion on some websites with safari or chrome and they just kept throwing me to the mobile view but DesktopBrowser doesn't care about any of that they get you to what you want without hesitating! LOVE IT!


Browser Is Like A Brother When It Comes To Browsing!

Thanks for being brotherly during the times and the ones to come of me in need of searching~ Now, that I have found what I was searching for (it's because of You, Brother Browser~ ☺️, all I need to do is decide, act to come and see what in person or other ways ~~~So yea, thanks again, Brother Browser~~~I Love You~Then, Now, Always & Forevermore~~~


Works great to make websites think you’re using a desktop browser

I was in a pinch and needed to update something on a website. I went to the website and kept getting served the mobile website even though I kept clicking the link to be shown the desktop version. I downloaded this browser and it worked great to do just that.


So Close but SO FAR. Fails at the basics.

This performs its intended function well, in a vacuum. But having to start at a menu screen is ridiculous, I’ve paid to upgrade and yet I still have to tap another button to “open the browser part of the browser app I just opened”

That’s ridiculous. It has ZERO basic functions like tabbed browsing and cannot even keep a website open in the background while you switch to another app on an iPhone XS.

This browser should be perfect, but it’s too busy getting in its own way to actually be worthwhile, I’m requesting a refund from Apple, I’m frankly just astonished at how many basic functions are missing.


Great for tricking website into thinking you’re on a pc

I often go to websites who have specific parts of their website that are pc-only, and DesktopBrowser works perfectly to make them think I’m on a pc. I just watch one short ad and boom: unlimited browsing as a pc. Works great! (Wouldn’t recommend as a daily driver browser due to feature limitations though)


Near perfect with the right tricks

If your having a tough time, try flipping the screen sideways and then turning it back vertical. If you’re still having a tough time then try going into mobile and then going back into desktop that should fix it.


Works well

Finally something to rival Puffin. I used Puffin for years and worked great. Recently some of my fav websites features Puffin will not load anymore. This browser loaded all sub menus exactly as the desktop site. I hope they improve the UI with a virtual mouse like Puffin has. Also I don’t see the history option. Maybe just a trial version hiccup. I’m going to try the $3 pro version just because it loads my stuff.


An essential app to have, needs couple tweaks

Thrilled that DesktopBrowser exists now that Puffin browser is no more, absolutely essential for me to have a true desktop mode browser, and I was happy to pay for the full version.

It needs two tweaks:
1) PLEEEEASE add the ability to download PDFs. When the browser opens a pdf file, there is no way to transfer the pdf to another app like normal. There needs to be an “Open In” button or Share button, like in other mobile browsers.
2) it needs more normal navigation layout. Back and Forward buttons should be up top, Done should not close the window & exit browsing history (I lose my place all the time pressing that.)

Otherwise thanks for a great app.


Website does not work with this browser.

I purchased DesktopBrowser to login for work on Paychex Flex. However the site will not function properly it only allows me to login and then the screen only sites the top blue bar and no content. If you can fix this I will keep my purchase, otherwise I will be looking for a new desktop browser application that meets my needs. Thank you


turn my Iphone into a lap top

Can work on the web like i have a laptop or regular computer with Iphone this is a breakthrough. I hope they do not get shut done. for it negates the need for some apps.
i am able to edit java and websites from my iphone and do not have to have another app to do it! or my laptop!!!
keep up the good work!


Great solution to see desktop from mobile

Sometimes a bit clunky, but DesktopBrowser is totally functional. Let's you see the desktop site from a mobile device, notably with the width set to 1024px (or something similar) so responsive sites still show as desktop with DesktopBrowser.


Fake misleading trash

DesktopBrowser is complete trash. You might get a desktop here or there but it’s inconsistent and often goes back to mobile pages. Furthermore in desktop it’s unable to play most videos correctly if at all. Waste of time money misleading and trash.


Lifesaver of an app

This browser has allowed me to complete tasks on my phone thanks to the desktop mode, that I could not complete with any other browser because their “request desktop” feature didn’t work.

Kudos to the developer for making it work as expected!



The delete button under the browser history section doesn’t work. Please fix this. Thanks.


Essential app to have

DesktopBrowser is a lifesaver since the sites were still opening as mobile versions despite requesting desktop sites in Safari and Firefox. I am really glad DesktopBrowser exists. It immediately opened desktop versions for everything I could not do that with before. Thank you, developer!


Free Gogo internet !

So i downloaded this to my iPad as it allows you to emulate a “mobile device” this “tricks” gogo inflight internet into thinking your iPad is a phone and loads the mobile version of gogo. Select TMobile and enter a friends TMobile number and you have free messaging and internet for an hour.


Works well

Kind of irritating that even after you purchase the plus plan you have to go to the landing page and select it each time you launch the browser. I bought it so I obviously want it, why do I have to manually choose it each time? It just seems like lazy software developers to me


New tab option is awesome!

This browser is essential... allowing you to view the web page you'd see from a computer vrs the mobile version which isn't always ideal. THANKS to the developer!


Works great

Needed to access a part of a site that would not work on a mobile browser and this browser worked perfectly in desktop mode.


Very useful.

Have to open some sites on EBay that only requires on a desktop browser and this was pretty nifty.

PayPal browser doesn’t seem to work yet. It goes to mobile upon opening. Please fix


Full of scummy ads and 90% of the features require paying for premium.

Every time you open the browser it makes you watch an ad. Javascript, tabs, and fullscreen as well as a bunch of other stuff are locked behind a paywall. Other than that, it does what it’s supposed to... But I will definitely not be using this tripe unless something is literally broken in mobile browsers. Which happens far too often...
