add a 'force zoom' option

  • Some sites disable pinch to zoom, which is very annoying on my tablet and phone.
    Please add an option to override that.
    Chrome has it, but as it has no text reflow, i prefer Opera.

  • Support

    Desperately need this function

    Are you talking about old Presto-based versions of Opera (12.17-)?!
    It's not being developed anymore. So there's no chance that new features will get implemented. Sorry.

    It's about the Android (Opera-Chromium) version which has text reflow.

  • One can disable zoom on one's website on mobile devices by adding this line in HTML:

    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, user-scalable=no" />
    

    But if Opera would override that, it would not follow the web standards. The websites that do that can have their reasons, but I agree; it's really annoying.

    I think it would be nice if Opera add an option to override it in settings, that is disabled by default, but so the user can enable it if he/she really would like that.

  • I agree, I'd really like to see this option. Plenty of site designers seem to disable the pinch zoom without actually checking if their font size is big enough. Sometimes it's just preventing me from reading the content (!), but other times I can't click links as they are too tiny to register!

    As others have said, Opera Mobile has a pretty good text flow option, so let's have a 'force allow zoom' option. It's a better solution to the problem than going to the desktop site, which is the only option just now.

  • Great, the feature is here, not sure since when.
