Description from store Right-click a column of text and pick "Zoom" to make it take up the whole width of the screen. Esc unzooms. Or you can tap Shift then click a column of text to zoom in on it, and/or press +/-/0 to adjust the font size. If you tap Shift accidentally, cancel zooming by tapping it again (or pressing any other key). This extension works best for text-heavy sites: news, blogs, and so forth. It won't zoom all content correctly, and it's disabled for some sites like GMail and Hotmail where it doesn't work. Like all extensions, it's disabled on this site, too. And it's experimental: it could cause you problems. If the keyboard shortcuts interfere with a webpage, you can disable them on a page by pressing ` (the backquote key, underneath Escape on some keyboards). If you like this extension, take a look at the Readability Redux extension (by different folks), which lets you strip many news/blog sites down to plain text. Note: This extension was originally published by another author. I loved this extension but it was not maintained any more and it was not worked on recent version of chrome. So I decided to fix it for latest chrome. I really appreciate original authors' efforts. origin: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/smart-zoom/emfkpabfhchapdbfcmphhcagnkdloanp

  • (2023-08-27) Alucard Hellsing: It is great but it has some undesirable behavior and it has no way to fix, it sets all the font size in youtube to a smaller font.
  • (2022-12-13) Kamil Palczewski: I haven't found better extension to do smart zoom. Why isn't this more popular?!?!?!?! Thank you, developer! :heart:
  • (2022-04-21) Chen Benjamin: eye saver!
  • (2022-03-10) Chris Coleman: Hi Sae Yuki. Thank you for developing this. The feature I miss most on my mac is 2-finger tap to zoom to content width. I just started developing this extension, but you had already done it. Thank you!
  • (2021-10-30) Rami Refaat Amin: Great, but we need option to disable in some sites because some shortcuts work in both, and we need free select area to focus on video.
  • (2020-10-21) Chen Chang: No longer working I think
  • (2020-03-08) Julian Ding: Love it! The original extension used to be great but somehow disappeared from webstore. This one is just equally amazing and I would appreciate it if a firefox version was available.

  • (2019-05-09) Leon Zh. (LogicNorthSea): it is very useful, I even give up firefox just for this extension. I haven't found an alternative option until now
  • (2018-09-11) Ricardo Abraham Benavides Fernandez: Esta extensión como indica el autor ya no estaba actualizada. Es una suerte que alguien la hay retomado ya que funciona de maravilla.
  • (2018-08-20) Lucas Rangit Magasweran: Thank you for fixing this plugin and restoring support! It's really the best way to zoom. It's like having a "Reader Mode" option on every site.
