    Update : if you don't mind using 3rd party extensions check the 2nd post below...

    Google Chrome remembers the zoom level you set for each site,
    but Safari requires you zoom each page every time.

    Found a tip that allows you to set a default zoom level in Safari.

    I attached a file I used that changed to default zoom to 120%,
    just unzip it and use the .css file,
    or you can create your own as per the link below.

    1) Safari... Preferences > Advanced.
    Under style sheet, select Other, point to the Safari120.css file.

    2) Fully quit and restart Safari.

    I love it.. In Safari when you are setting the "Never use font sizes smaller than xx" (Preferences>Advanced) it gives you option to choose 14 and then 18. I find that 14 is to small and 18 to big (on 13" screen).. So I had a look around.. Hence AllPagesZoom :)

    Agreed very nice extension. I actually set mine to 85%. Makes the screen look even larger. And surprisingly it doesn't hurt my eyes, even with my glasses off. Granted I don't really have a strong prescription, but still.

    Talking about great extensions for Safari... I also quite like the Omni bar

    Makes it work like Chrome Omnibox...

    If I can one find that adds favicons to the Bookmarks bar... I'd be a happy man... Life is hard :)

    DUDE! I've been looking for an add-on just like this forever! This is the main reason I still used Firefox with the Omnibar add-on lol. The only thing now is I wish it focused the bar when you create a new window or tab...

    Meaning it highlights the bar so I can type things in it right when I open the tab.

    EDIT: Nvm. I figured it out. Safari has to create a blank new tab/page for it to auto focus the address bar.
