Print Size on 27 inch screen

SO I love my new imac 27inch and the screen is awesome and big...BUT the big doesn't help on some pages.

Example In safari - the print is always so small I zoom in with my track pad.
I have gone into settings and changed the part where it says never show any font less than xx and picked a few numbers, but then the print doesn't always line up and fit.

Any suggestions? or do I need to change browsers? or is there an app that can change it?

In email, I have changed to the standard view to increase the font.

HAHA! Wearing glasses at all would be good. But on my pc (which I am on right now for work)...I have no problems...and I am thinking what is the point of the big screen if you can't make it bigger

you could change the resolution to 1920*1080? But then again you loose a lot of screen space when working with multiple windows..

I use the Safari extension Quickstyle to reset font sizes on specific pages.

Have you tried Comand + and Command - keyboard commands to enlarge and make smaller text?
