    On my pcs, I just hold control (or maybe it was alt) then I scroll in with the mouse the font size increases on the webpage.

    On my mac, when you hold control and scroll up (macbook pro) it zooms the camera in like a disability zoom feature.

    Is there not an easy shortcut for increasing font size like on pcs??

    To make it bigger press Command(+)+ and the make it smaller use Command(+)-.

    The command key is the one with the Apple on it.:)

    Go to View and Customize Toolbar in Safari-- add the buttons, if you like.

    Go to System Preferences > Keyboard and Mouse. You can change your settings there.

    That doesn't help him with font size, only the zoom...

    No, he's right his was the best, yours was O.K.

    I think the zoom would be a better feature. Now that Adobe have Flash maybe we can go forward with Scalable Vector Graphics and stop arsing about with craazy css between browsers. Especially as Leopard is going resolution independent for the GUI the concept might just catch on.

    In case you didn't read the thread, I didn't make any suggestions since he made the right one. I just told someone that said they needed to go into the Keyboard settings in System Preferences that it'll only affect zoom. I had no problem with his solution, just his demand to quit spamming when he was himself anyway.
