This is just... wrong. Chrome latest, just started now.

It only seems to be happening on SO, I checked several other SE sites.

  • What Version?. No repro here – Walker Dec 18 '13 at 23:02
  • That looks like userscript gone wrong. – Travis J Dec 18 '13 at 23:03

    @TravisJ Not using any custom userscripts, version 31.0.1650.63 – Geobits Dec 18 '13 at 23:03
  • @GenericHolidayName I use the same version but no repro. Check again – Walker Dec 18 '13 at 23:04
  • I am on Version 31.0.1650.63 m. Don't see anything out of the ordinary. – Travis J Dec 18 '13 at 23:04
  • Perhaps the mobile link shouldn't be shown to desktop users. – Travis J Dec 18 '13 at 23:06
  • @TravisJ, how can you know for sure that the user is viewing it on a Desktop ? – Habib Dec 18 '13 at 23:08

    @Travis I don't like sites that prevent me from doing something thats technicaly available just because they think I shouldn't. Mobile browsers had to get a whole setting of "pretend to be a desktop" because of that sort of thing – Richard Tingle Dec 18 '13 at 23:09
  • @Habib - Feature detection. – Travis J Dec 18 '13 at 23:09
  • @RichardTingle - I would blame that more on Safari's fail mobile browser than on sites specifically. When the iPhone first came out it rendered a lot of pages.. well, horribly. It is better now, and android does a really good job of it. Either way, it is just noise. I doubt any desktop users want to view the page in the mobile setting. It is essentially a link for less features, not more. – Travis J Dec 18 '13 at 23:13

You accidentally switched to the mobile site. Click the "full site" link at the bottom to revert.

    Well ain't that something. Typical idiot user. No idea how I accidentally clicked a footer link, but seems I did. – Geobits Dec 18 '13 at 23:05

It appears that you're on mobile; that's what the mobile browser looks like on iPhone. Go back to the full site by going to the bottom and clicking 'full site'
