    In Apple's Safari web browser, there are several ways to make viewing web pages easier on the eyes. All of them involve adjusting the font size or the zoom level that Safari applies when it loads web page content, which can be helpful if you're using a small screen or a large display set at a high resolution.

    To increase or decrease the zoom level of both text and images when viewing web pages in Safari, press Command and the + (plus) or - (minus) keys. You can also click on View in Safari's menu bar and select Zoom In or Zoom Out.

    Alternatively, you can add zoom buttons to Safari's interface: Right-click (or Ctrl-click) on a space in the Safari toolbar and click Customize Toolbar.... Then drag the Zoom buttons in the dropdown to the space you just clicked on the toolbar. Click Done to finish.

    If you want to keep images at the same size and only adjust web page font size on the fly, press Option-Command and the + or - keys. You can also hold down the Option key and click on View in the Safari menu bar, which changes the Zoom options to Make Text Bigger and Make Text Smaller.

    Safari will remember your zoom and font size settings until you clear your History. To do so, click Safari in the menu bar, select Clear History..., then click the Clear History button.

    I set Safari to never use font sizes smaller than 12 points. It's made a huge improvement on Reddit, especially.

    @MacRumors : There's also the feature (originally from Safari on iOS?) where you can two-finger double-tap on a column of text and Safari will zoom in on that column. I use that All. The. Time. It gets the part I want to look at right then, it's crazy easy to do, and you can switch back with the same gesture.

    I also use the Cmd-Opt-+ sometimes, with Cmd-0 to reset to normal size (regardless of how many '+' or '-' you've done).
