    Hello. The other day I was trying Chrome browser on an Android tablet and it has a very useful feature that consist in increasing the size of the text of a web page (e.g. this forum) but not as a whole zoom of the page but only the text so the rest of the page is shown in it's original size. It's quite useful because you can see all the page and it's contents but the actual text of the forum post can be bigger.

    I haven't find a similar function on the Safari browser just a "dumb" zoom all the page but not only the text. I downloaded the Chrome app for iPad but to my surprise the feature of Chrome in Android devices is NOT available for the iPad app.

    Any clues or suggestions? Thank you!!

    Nope. Just have to use third party browsers.

    It's possible with something called bookmarklets (just a bit of JavaScript):
