Zoom Block

CRX id


Description from extension meta

Disable zooming by default. Re-enable zooming on a per-tab basis by clicking the Zoom Block icon.

Description from store Zoom Block disables zooming in Chrome by default preventing unwanted or accidental zooming. Zooming can be re-enable on a per-tab basis by clicking the Zoom Block icon. FAQ: Q: What permissions does Zoom Block require? A: Zoom Block does not require any permissions. Through careful handling of errors, Zoom Block is able to operate without access to any sensitive information. Q: Does Zoom Block use analytics? A: No. Zoom Block respects its users' privacy. No network requests of any kind are ever made. Q: Can Zoom Block "lock" a custom zoom level? A: The browser extension API does not offer an elegant way to accomplish this. The best option is to change the browser's default zoom level. Chrome's default zoom settings can be found in Settings -> Appearance -> Page Zoom. Zoom Block will then prevent modifications to the set level. Q: Why does Zoom Block's icon sometimes turn gray? A: Some browsers do not allow extensions to modify certain pages (typically internal or settings pages). Zoom Block is therefore unable to prevent zooming on those pages, and the icon will turn gray to indicate such a situation. Q: I found a bug! Where can I submit a report? A: Please open an issue on GitHub (https://github.com/warnellw/Zoom-Block/issues) with a detailed description. Pull requests welcome! License: Zoom Block is licensed under GPLv3.

  • (2021-12-18) Bruce Preston: Need to set zoom on a per site basis not per tab basis.
  • (2021-12-05) Damian / DohShinobi: Does exactly what is promises. No extra permissions. No extra fees.
  • (2021-04-12) Alex Stone: What a relief. Pinch to zoom appears to be mandatory and this blocks it. Thanks
  • (2021-02-08) Adji Saputro: Works great! Thank you so much!
  • (2020-09-20) Carson Frank: This is exactly all I needed. Works perfectly so when I mouse wheel out on my maps for Roll20, the webpage doesn't start zooming out further!
  • (2020-09-12) Benny FERNANDEZ PARADA: Funciona muy bien. Resultados sin complicaciones. Excelente extension. Felicidades Wesley!!
  • (2020-08-28) Parkle Lee: Works, but normal scrolling is blocked when holding down the Ctrl key. "Disable Scroll Wheel Zoom" is an alternative extension that solves this problem: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/disable-scroll-wheel-zoom/mdpfkohgfpidohkakdbpmnngaocglmhl?hl=en&authuser=0
  • (2020-07-25) Andy Teall: Doesn't work, and slows down mouse responsiveness
  • (2020-07-24) Eric Blair: Solved a major headache for me when using Roll20. Thanks!
  • (2020-06-23) Pedro Domingos: Finally! Simple solution for a stupid problem in Chrome (and now Microsoft Edge).
  • (2020-01-31) PocketPaladin: You're my hero! Thanks for this extension. Works great.
  • (2019-12-13) Chris Vydas: Blocks nothing. Browsers continues to zoom in when the focus is placed on the text input field which would be ok if the browser didn't zoom so far in and reverted to the previous zoom level once focusing on the main portion of the page, but that's not what happens. This extension does nothing at all.
  • (2019-12-12) nathanebht: Blocks accidental control + mousewheel zooming. However, it doesn't remember any websites that you intentionally want to zoom. You can temporarily turn it off but if you go back to a website its turned on again.
  • (2019-11-17) Antonne W: So far so good. Thanks!
  • (2019-09-11) Simon Boucher: Don't work on Pixel Slate...
  • (2019-07-02) Fernando González del Cueto: I zoom into pages by accident all the time due to my mouse wheel button. It's so annoying. I'm glad I found this extension. Works great.
  • (2019-06-16) Ryan Solen: Works!!!
  • (2019-05-28) Jakub Przybylak: I find it very useful to use multitouch navigation not worrying about enlargening the pages. However, I'd like to have a whitelist - can't find this option. Help?
  • (2019-05-12) Adam Long: My god. I've been looking for this fix for well over a year with nothing to show for it until this. Stupid problem, easy solution. Don't know why more people have't seen this.
  • (2019-05-03) Hrishikesh Garud: Does it what it says!
  • (2019-03-27) brainac0cult: using chrome without this is a complete ballache. you're doing gods work
  • (2019-03-19) L O: ¡¡Excelente!! Funciona muy bien, bloqueó la posibilidad de hacer zoom cuando presiono "ctrl" + "+". Muchas gracias
  • (2019-01-26) stew leo: I wanted to lock it at 80%. This app is of no help what so ever!
  • (2018-12-06) Kyle Fritz: works great!
  • (2018-09-20) Caleb Parker: Perfect extensions. I wanted it so that my google docs would stop zooming when I did the "command + ." shortcut for superscript, and this extension gets the job done. Many thinks to the creator.
  • (2018-05-29) D-Rock Anomaly: Just got a new keyboard/touchpad pad combo, and I keep accidentally pinch zooming when trying to scroll. This extension solves that problem, thanks! Does exactly what it says it does.
  • (2018-05-21) David Godding: Solved the annoying often accidental 'ctrl + scroll zoom' on ubuntu (and maybe others). Thanks! (Not active on the default chrome home page - would be nice, but definitely not essential)
