    Smile Firefox - cool !!

    I am a bit sight challenged - and came across this about firefox 3. I thought it would be good to share.
    If you hold down Ctrl on the keyboard and move the scroll roller on the mouse, you can zoom in and out to see more clearly. Firefox also remembers your setting for that page.
    Nice work.

    Alastairo,

    Yup, that's one great addition to Firefox. Not only can you do this
    with the mouse, it also works from the keyboard using Ctrl and + or -

    That behaviour has existed for a long time, on lots of browsers, included
    IE, Konqueror, etc...
    Don't know if they all save the settings, tough.

    Previously only the text was resized. Now, all page elements
    are resized at the same time.

    Oh, OK. Haven't checked it out. Sounds better.

    How does the saving of settings go? Are they auto-saved, or do you need to
    ask for it ?
