    I'm having this stupid problem with eBay links when I try to open it from here (wpc app). Whenever i click on link it opens page in IE but in WAP version..
    http://s3.postimg.org/z1r6q3bgz/wp_ss_20140825_0001.png

    To actually open that eBay page I have to follow this steps..
    Open article (from app) in browser (IE)
    Copy that link (article)
    Paste it in UC browser
    Click on eBay link - now it opens (in UCB)

    If I copy that link from UCB and paste it in IE it again opens in WAP. even if switch between mobile and desktop version. Is there anyway to directly open eBay link from WPC app in normal mobile version website in IE ?? Please help get rid of Wap version of eBay

    Update. Links not only from WPC but even from email open in WAP

    I have the same problem. This is the "new and improved" behaviour of the "new" IE in WP8.1 GDR1. I wish I did not install it.
    This new IE is just way worse than previous version. They think they have fixed many webs by impersonating as webkit browser, but in reality they broke a lot of other stuff. eBay is not the only web where I have problems.
    I think this was incredibly stupid move, now IE is not IE and it's not webkit, it's something in between. Some IE targeted webs fail because they are not able to recognize IE anymore and some of the webkit targeted webs fail because IE webkit implementation is incomplete. Not mentioning that you are now being detected as an Android OS on some webs, seeing Android targeted ads.
    Enough of rant. I do not know any fix for this problem and I do not think there is any (apart from pasting links into UC). Until MS patch IE in GDR2 (which I highly doubt, because they are now so proud of how they "fixed" IE) or eBay will change their browser detection logic (which I also highly doubt).
    So, live with it. Another thing broken in WP.
