Mac OS X Increase or Decrease a Web Browser Font Size

Posted October 3, 2004 by macster in Apple Mac

Some web pages may use a font size that does not render properly in different browsers on various platforms. If you find yourself squinting at a web page, this simple keyboard shortcut can help.


To increase the font size of the current web page, press command + by holding down the command key (with the apple and the looping symbol) and pressing a plus key (no shift required).

To reduce the font size, press command – (command and minus).

I have tested this with Safari and Firefox. It may work with other browsers and applications.
