    Just curious to know what you guys view your 27 inch iMAC at?

    I am using 1080 x 1920 because it's best on my eyes.

    2560 x 1440 is just too small for me with the webpages and fonts.

    Native. Non-native looks like crap, and I lose sooo much real-estate. If I want to read text easier on web browser, I just use the command zoom.

    Running it native too.
    But have to admit that I adjusted the font size in Safari ;)

    Native. Running anything less looks like crap and defeats the purpose of getting a 27" screen in the first place.

    Native. Boost up the font and icon sizes if you think they are too small. Anything besides native is a waste.

    native for sure. and command zoom.

    i find that viewing webpages with small text is easier on my eyes if i have a near-black wallpaper behind it. i can get up close to the screen without being blinded.

    Thanks. will change once I get home back to native!

    The main problem is not only the text size (which I will now adjust to make bigger), but also the Safari window becomes so small. Can I change the size of the Safari window as well??

    Click and hold the bottom right corner of the window and drag to the size you want.

    Unless you meant something else.

    Thanks. I thought I tried but maybe it wasn't the lower right that I tried to drag.

    Thanks agian. Will try it once I get home.

    OK. It's kinda weird that only lower right lets you resize but OK.

    Command & "+" zoomed it for me. But I also changed the font size in Safari and I noticed that it doesn't alway change the font size?

    Did I do anything wrong? Or should I really resort to Command Zoom everytime I open up safari? Thanks again

    Native. Don't need to think twice about it. The extra real-estate was the main reason why I went with the 27" over the 21".

    In OS X Lion you will be able to resize a window from all corners.

    To set a minimum font preference

    1. Menu -> Safari -> Preferences
    2. Click on Advanced Tab
    3. Check the setting "Never use font size smaller than"
    4. Set the font size to your preference.

    I hope that we'll be able to resize, after all Windows has had this feature for a long time.
