Definition: desktop website

A website designed for the full screens on desktop and laptop computers. When websites are queried from a mobile browser in a smartphone, a mobile version of the site will be retrieved if available, and the user has little choice. However, because mobile sites may have abbreviated content, a "Request Desktop Site" option was added to iPhone and Android browsers. Contrast with mobile website. See responsive Web design.
