size does matter

I use google chrome and have the ability to zoom in on websites. Until yesterday the giant was always pretty small in size and tough to read. Now I have it zoomed in and it's like a whole new world. The text area takes up my whole screen! It's great. What browser do you use most?

what is the command for zooming in on firefox? Or is it a preference setting? In Chrome you just use the touch pad like an iPad. (I have a laptop)

both safari and firefox are command(⌘) shift + to zoom in and command(⌘) shift - to zoom out.

safari also works the same way with a touchpad, either double tap in an area to zoom in on that area or pinch with two fingers

firefox does support zoom in/out on a touchpad but it's not on by default. here are the directions to turn it on:
1) open firefox and enter this in the address bar and hit enter/return: about:config
2) in the search field on the page that just loaded type in: Gesture
3) double click on each of these preferences and paste in the cmd_ value in the popup box:
browser.gesture.pinch.in -> cmd_fullZoomReduce
browser.gesture.pinch.in.shift -> cmd_fullZoomReset
browser.gesture.pinch.out -> cmd_fullZoomEnlarge
browser.gesture.pinch.out.shift -> cmd_fullZoomReset
browser.gesture.pinch.latched -> false

OR try a plugin like this for firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/pinchy/
