Say "no" to small fonts.

I just installed NoSquint, a Firefox extensions which enables you to configure the default text zooming. 125% seems to work well on my MacBook Pro, but you can also configure the zooming by domain for especially egregious offenders.

I like to blame it on these damned Macs and their ever increasing DPI. ;)

Delicious!
I was looking for such an extension for years!

(My monitor has too small dot pitch)

If this works it will be the greatest FireFox extension ever. I end up adjusting the size of essentially every page I view...

Ha ha. Pat is actually the one who taught me to stop squinting. You should see the size of his terminal font. ;)

A better idea is to install Opera. Sensible fonts, and it loads pages without leaving time for a game of mines. I don't understand why people still use Firefox (apart from on 64-bit Ubuntu, where the 32-bit-only Opera doesn't link).
