Yes of course, same as it is on any recent version of IE.

Developer Tools (hit F12 - that is, Fn+PgDn if you have a Touch or Type cover - or go to the Tools menu) -> and then scroll down on the left side until you get to "Emulation" or some such thing (icon should liike like a phone and/or tablet, I think). There's options there to use one of many common UASs or to use a custom one.

Obviously, this assumes desktop mode. The "immersive" browser is crippled, just like pretty much all mobile browsers.
Win8/Windows RT projects:
List of desktop apps for hacked RT devices

WP8 projects:
Native Access WebServer and Libraries
WP8 Interop Unlocks
Storage Cleanup tool

WP7 projects:
XapHandler, Root Webserver, OEM Marketplace XAPs, Bookmarklets collection (Find On Page), Interop-unlock hacks.

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.
