Is there ANY way to zoom web pages on Chrome for Android?

Unread postby ErDova » Sat Apr 30, 2016 4:41 pm

So far this is the biggest annoyance I have: although I have set it for a 150% Zoom on Accesibility options, nearly all webs gets zoomed whenever they damn want, and still those where the zoom do applies, they still zoom only some elements, while the others remains at their original resolution. And that, having a 1080p resolution, is annoying as hell.

Is there any way/plugin/whatever for fixing this? Does that happens with Firefox, too? I'm used to Chrome, so I wouldn't like to change browsers, but if Firefox is better in this matter...

Also, unrelated, but I don't wanna open another thread...I'd love to have support for this wifi adapter, if possible (please :D):

I have no idea about the zoom on Android Chrome.
But it might be worth to adjust the density value "ro.sf.lcd_density=160" in build.prop file of Android system.
Code: Select all
$ su
# mount -o rw,remount /
# vi /system/build.prop
# reboot 


We can support only below three different chipsets on Android platform due to very complicated WLAN driver porting process.

Wifi module 1/0: Ralink RT5370 (148F:5370)

What does that "density value" does?

And BTW, this is something that happens on all browsers, not just Chrome. I don't know how 4K users deal with it.... D:

...all of them? That'd only aggravate the problem. Text that is currently small would look OK, but any text and everything else that isn't would look gigantic.

Oh well, I'll give it a try when I have some spare time.

The AOSP stock browser seems to support the zoom with the mouse.
Double click and drag the mouse cursor up and down. The zoom works.
But the Chrome browser doesn't support it.
