Mouse Pinch-To-Zoom

CRX id


Description from extension meta

Zoom in on a specific part of the website, like you would with a touchpad!

Image from store Mouse Pinch-To-Zoom
Description from store Mouse Pinch-To-Zoom allows you to zoom in and out on a website without making everything huge and unreadable! It works like pinch-to-zoom on a touchpad or a touchscreen, but all you need is a mouse wheel. The extension offers two activation modes: • Zoom by turning the mouse wheel while holding the Alt key • Zoom by turning the mouse wheel while holding the right mouse button You can also customize the speed and smoothness. All the settings are easily accessible by clicking on the extension logo. Known bugs/imperfections: • Zooming over an iframe (embedded content from another website) will zoom the inside of the iframe. • Some websites might be incompatible. Feel free to email me with a bug report.

  • (2021-05-21) Oliver Rigg: Really useful extension, but unfortunately the smoothness of regular scrolling in chrome is overridden by the smoothness setting in this extension. I'm not able to set the smoothness in the extension lower than 1.

  • (2021-03-03) David Nguyen: Incredible! Simulates pinch to zoom just like on a touchpad/touchscreen but for desktop! I've been looking for ways to simulate pinch to zoom a while ago but never found a solution till now. Thankyou! However if you are on a a subreddit page like r/chrome and you click on a reddit thread the words are blurry and you sometimes get black bars. If you click on a direct link to the reddit thread or refresh though, it doesn't have this problem.

  • (2021-07-26, v:1.0) Sergio Angeles: it does not work
    it does not work at all, I really need it and this is the only remotely close solution that I've found online
  • (2021-06-09, v:1.0) Krischal Khanal: Doesn't work on chrome web store
    This extension is not working in the website that I downloaded it from.
  • (2021-06-09, v:1.0) Krischal Khanal: A few suggestions
    Would you add functions that does following things? 1. Ability to pan the website by holding Alt and dragging. 2. Ability to zoom out the part zoomed in by touchpad.
  • (2021-06-09, v:1.0) Krischal Khanal: Multiple Zooming Issue
    It appears that zooming using touchpad and zooming using this extension are separate things. That is because, if I zoom using this extension, then try to zoom out by pinching out on the touchpad, it doesn't work and neither does vice versa. Touchpad only zooms out the amount zoomed in by the touchpad, and the same is true for this extension. I would like to suggest to use more internal functions that interfaces with internal functioning of touchpad zooming, if possible.
