Some people use styles that make the text too small to read. So I make the text larger. Then I navigate away. Make the text smaller. Permalink to this paragraph

Too much work. Permalink to this paragraph

It would be nice if the browser popped up a dialog asking if I'd like it to remember this text size for this site for the next time I go there. Permalink to this paragraph

Jason Lefkowitz found something even better -- a minimum font size preference. I just tried setting it to 13 and already some sites are more readable (like Gmail). Thanks!! Permalink to this paragraph
