desktop Web site

desktop Web site

A Web site designed for the large screens in desktop and laptop computers. When Web sites 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. Because mobile sites may have abbreviated content, in 2015, Apple's mobile iOS 9 operating system added a "Request Desktop Site" browser option that will download the full desktop site. Contrast with mobile Web site. See responsive Web design.
