Starting yesterday afternoon (i.e. 05/12/2012 at about 16:00 CET) stackoverflow.com started serving the desktop version of the site to my handheld using Opera Mini on Android 2.3. (whereas it used to serve the mobile site before).
I am not sure if this is happening by design, yet I think that about 99% of Opera Mini users would agree with me when I say that I would strongly prefer getting the mobile version as both the layout and functionality of the full version of SO is complete overkill for a tool as simple as Opera Mini.
Is this a bug or does this change have any background?
