Default Blackberry Browser question

Is there any way to make your pages on your blackberry look like the one on your actual computer? Sorry If this is a repost.

blackberry definitely doesn't handle frames well, so if you're hitting frame sites forget about it. Remember also the huge difference in screen resolutions, it would be difficult to scale a web page built for a 800x600 resolution on a 320x240

Go to Options while in your browser. Under Emulation, choose Microsoft IE, and click every check box. That's the closest you can get to the real thing on these devices.

I don't think it would look good if you could fit whole web pages on the screen. Everything would be very tiny and the proportion of the BB screen is different from that of your desktop.
