    I convinced my mom to get a macbook air this weekend, but she is having hard time reading the text in safari. She is used to a bigger computer that has larger text. is there anyway to increase the font in safari

    CMD++ enlarges the entire page and Safari > Preferences > Advanced has an option to set the minimum font size.

    Under safari -> preferences -> advanced I usually set the font size to minimum 14. Much more comfortable to read.

    Teach her about the double tap to zoom features if you haven't already. I myself love that gesture in particular.

    Set default zoom in Safari

    You can set a default zoom level for Safari. In this way you don't have to hit Cmd+ (or Cmd-) every time you start Safari

    1) Open Textedit app, go to menu Format and select Make Plain Text

    2) Copy and paste in the following:

    body {
    zoom: 130%;
    }

    You may change 130 to whatever number suits you

    3) Save the file with .css extension (for example Safarizoom.css) in Library > Safari folder

    4) In Safari, go to Preferences > Advanced. Under style sheet, select Other... and point to the file you created
