Warm Feature: Full-Page Zoom (Sometimes Bigger Is Better)
To make tiny text easier to read, Safari 3 allowed you to modify the text size for all pages in the current tab by choosing commands from the View menu: Make Text Bigger, Make Text Smaller, or Make Text Normal Size. In Safari 4, zooming (magnification) can affect graphics as well as text, as it does in Internet Explorer 7 (Windows). Whether the new zoom level affects only the text or both graphics and text depends on whether the View > Zoom Text Only command is checked. To change the magnification, you can choose a command from the View menu or press a keyboard shortcut. Each open tab can have a different magnification.
Although this is a welcome change, it lacks the versatility and convenience of the Internet Explorer 7 implementation, in which you can easily choose a specific magnification from the Change Zoom Level drop-down menu in the lower-right corner of the browser window.
