Geertivp added a comment to T223547: Allow a logged-in MediaWiki user to choose for default desktop interface on a tablet.

On the desktop Chrome I have found the http://osxdaily.com/2013/01/16/change-user-agent-chrome-safari-firefox/ option to set the User agent string via "top left menu bar developer option". This deeply hidden option would allow me to test the mobile website behaviour on my desktop device. Which would be nice for debugging or simulation purposes.

I am trying to investigate how the "Wikidata Infobox" could be used on Wikipedia as a default Infobox, if no other more specific infobox would be required.

@Aklapper : Well, to be honest, I am attending the Wikimedia Hackathon in Prague next weekend. I preferred to create a list of known problems I encountered myself this year while using the VE. I am also new to Phabricator. Adding myself as "Assigned To" was the most easy (interim) way to keep a list of those issues.
