How to deactivate the safari double-click zoom in?

Lion brings the iOS double-click zoom-in back to Mac
However, the Macbook screen is big enough, so I think it isn't necessary and useful

And I cannot find a setting to deactivate it.

I use double-click in safari to select a single word, now it can select and zoom-in in the same time.

How to deactivate this? Anyone can give a hand?

Are you sure you are doing it right? It is double tap for zoom, not double click. You don't actually press down the trackpad. Also you have to use two fingers while you tap.

So move your cursor over an area, then double tap using two fingers. It should zoom in like it does on iOS Safari. The same gesture zooms out.

To be honest I haven't had a single time where I triggered it accidentally. I have been using it a little bit on my 11" MBA for fun but I don't see myself using it that much.

You got it. I use the BetterTouchTool to add tap to click,so when I double tap the mouse, it will work as double click .

In Snow Leopard there isn't the double tap function, so it doesn't matter. But the Lion brings the double tap ,so here comes the problem.

Thank you for you reply, Hope the author of BetterTouchTool can fix it in the future

Doesn't work for me. Double tap to zoom on a Mac seems silly to me.

Thanks! Because the OT talked about "iOS like", where you use one finger, and his talk about "select a single word", which you do with one finger. This is an awesome feature! Especially on these websites that use a tiny font (choosing minimum font size in the settings forces some design errors on some websites).

However, how can people trigger this accidentally? Doesn't make any sense for me.
