This site is a great resource for anyone interested in or needing a more accessible browser. And that is more people than you might think.

e.g. Can you easily read the graphic in this article? Not me.

Well, welcome to the FF2 Page Zoom extension and a teaser on why it will be much better with FF3. With the extension installed I right-click on the image to Open Link in New Tab and then use Alt++ / Alt+- to Zoom / Unzoom the image.

Hey it's a workaround, a kludge even, but it is a very useful one, and more reliable than zooming the whole page.

An alternative is to try to zoom the whole page, but in general I find this much slower and much less reliable (in FF2).

PageZoom 0.3.3

And to close, what FF3 will bring to Zoom.
