Default Browser emulation mode changes?

Please Login to Remove!

Previously I could change the way the browser would work from BlackBerry to Firefox or Internet Explorer. Now I don't see any way to do that on the Torch. That's a shame because a lot of sites will not let me download BlackBerry apps because it doesn't recognize my browser. Any ideas?

It comes with a new browser, therefore I imagine they think it doesnt need emulation modes anymore, and should be able to recognise any site.

The reason why I need to be able to choose the emulation mode is because some sites will NOT let me download their BlackBerry apps because it says my phone does not support their apps. I tried....every conceivable way to download the Kindle app which supposedly says it's supported by the Torch.
