    Currently, when I open safari on my 27" imac, the screen comes out too small, and I have to manually zoom it either via pinch-to-zoom or cmd+. Is there an option I can set so that when I open a page in a new tab, it defaults to that new increased size?

    I know I can set the default font size, and that is not what I want. I want the entire page resized.

    Thank you in advance for your help. :)

    I am not currently booted into ML right now.

    What happens if you manually resize the window by stretching the edges. Then quit Safari and restart it?

    I too have a 27" iMac and was frustrated much as you, until I happened upon: "AllPagesZoom", a donationware Safari Extension. Works great in 10.8.1. See

    I have mine set to 150%, but I have old eyes. YMMV.

    I realize this thread is a bit old just found it as I'm in the same shoes as you OP, curious which one of the two works best for you or others?

    I guess I'm going to try both

    Omg! Omg! Omg!

    OMG, thank you, thank you!

    I've been "command +"ing for months now to get the window contents larger for my bad eyes, every SINGLE damn time I open a window! Those extensions were a god send.

    KISS! KISS! :p;):)
