How to view mobile version of a website on Opera browser for pc

Recent Opera browser versions (Opera 12 and above) allow easily to switch between mobile and web view of any site in internet.
This is very useful when you have a very slow connection and an old computer, mobile sites make surfing the net a little bit easier.

Method 1: Some sites allow you to view the mobile site just by entering http://m. or http://mobile. or adding ?m=1 at the end of the url.

Method 2: Other sites won't let you view the mobile site on old browser versions.
So, it's possible to change the user agent string on the browser and, when surfing, our browser we'll be detected as if was Android, iOS or Windows Phone...

Steps for Opera browser (older than version 12):
a. Type on address bar-> opera:config
b. Look for ISP-> Add any mobile user agent string. Examples:
- For iOS 8.2: Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 8_2 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/600.1.4 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/8.0 Mobile/12D508 Safari/600.1.4
- For Android 5.0.2: Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 5.0.2; XT1068 Build/LXB22.46-28) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/42.0.2311.109 Mobile Safari/537.36
- For WP 8.1: Mozilla/5.0 (Mobile; Windows Phone 8.1; Android 4.0; ARM; Trident/7.0; Touch; rv:11.0; IEMobile/11.0; Microsoft; Lumia535) like iPhone OS7_0_3 Mac OS X AppleWebKit/537 (KHTML, like Gecko) Mobile Safari/537)

In order to check which is you user agent on your desktop browser: Enter, for example, http://mybrowserinfo.com
