Would it be possible to set mobile=false as the default for visitors with iPads or other tablets that can handle the normal mode of chat.stackoverflow? Or at least set a cookie when I select the "non-mobile" view (via the chat room menu at the bottom of the page)? The mobile version of chat is quite limited and iPad's can view the regular site just fine. Manually adding ?mobile=false to each url on every page I visit is no fun ;).

This was already done for the main site – Michael Mrozek Oct 15 '11 at 2:13
@MichaelMrozek Super glad about that, too! That would drive me crazy if it defaulted to mobile. I actually dont know of many sites that still lump iPads in with iPhones in their rewrites. – chown Oct 15 '11 at 4:12
There are no rewrites. That said, unfortunately the iPad browser used to have some ... issues. But I'll have another look. It definitely works fine in the Honyecomb browser, so we'll probably do this for Android tablets. – balpha Oct 15 '11 at 7:18
@balpha chat on the iPad non-mobile view still has issues. – Jack Douglas Dec 3 '12 at 19:37
@JackDouglas It sure does. – hairboat Jul 8 '14 at 16:45
