Are you using Safari 4? If so use Command - and the plus/minus key.

Safari 4 (beta) has the option to zoom the whole page, or text only.

The other option is screen zoom. Hold down the "ctrl" key, while scrolling with either the trackpad (two-finger) or a mouse scroll wheel. I use this more often than text zoom. It's great for an instant video zoom, too.

(I noticed you have the 17" UB too. The hi-res sometimes is a bit small, but I love the real estate.)

You can zoom in on your entire screen by pressing ctrl and scrolling.

actually after having a look at CMD + it seems that it just makes the text size bigger. the photos on the page dont get any bigger!
i know the zoom function with CTRL scroll up down but im rather looking to make all web pages bigger... including photos, videos etc..

any help?

cmd + works for me

be sure you have unchecked "zoom text only" under view menu of Safari.

that said, i hate that function. i usually control scroll...

Your two options are to use Firefox 3 or Safari 4.
