  • It would be nice if there was an icon in the toolbar we can easily use to zoom in or out, and if the gauge that shows the percentage was onscreen longer than two seconds, when we hit the zoom in or out option in the drop-down window . Why can't this be in the toolbar, as it is in all other browsers?

  • When the zoom is not 100%, you should see a icon in address bar.

  • @leocg I see it once I reduce or enlarge the page, so I don't know why they don't just have it there all the time? What's the point of it, if you still have use the View menu first? It makes no sense this way, plus, when I click on the icon, the window that opens disappears in about a second or two, usually before I can even click on up or down! Plus, even with the icon, it still involves an extra step no other browser requires. I'm so used to having a zoom in or out icon in the toolbar, that having to first open another menu is just wasted added actions...

    But thanks for letting me know about the little icon..

  • The main idea may be to show the user that that page is not on the regular 100% zoom, I guess.

  • @stevencee moving the mouse over the magnifying glass lets you see the zoom level. Though it would be nice to be able to see at a glance what setting you're at.

    You can also zoom in and out using one-click keyboard shortcuts. By default 0, 6, + and -. You have to enable one-click keyboard shortcuts first though.

    Also Ctrl+ mouse wheel if on Windows.

  • @NewWorldMan Yeah, I see that, but it's a race of reflexes to get to the numbers to try and make the zoom more or less!! 😉

  • @stevencee if you haven't already I would enable the one-click keyboard shortcuts. Better usability imo. Press 0 or + (repeatedly if desired) to zoom in and then 6 to return immediately to 100%. Far easier than messing around with the icon.
