How to get other browsers to view certain sites?

Some sites use a lot of ads and banners which cause PDAs to show junk along with the requested articles. I have been unsuccessful at getting offline readers like Plucker/Sunrise or online browsers like Opera to bypass the ads & banners.

However after browsing around last week using my Palm T3's standard browser, Web Pro, I found that it renders the pages beautifully bypassing the extra stuff. How can an older browser like that do this while the newer programs have difficulty?

As an example, look at this page with a mobile browser and you will get a lot of garbage:

or tinyurl:

Is there a way to get either Sunset or Opera Mini to do what WebPro does?
