k3 vs k2 browser

is there a way to adjust font size in the webkit browser?
I just got a k3 after having a k2 and am finding the browser more difficult to use than the k2.
(for example, selecting an article from nytimes and viewing in 'article mode' cuts off some of the right margin text.)
using the Aa key on the k2 you can change the font size; I'm wondering if on the k3 there is some way to do that without zooming in.

I like this webkit browser but I find the way the k2/DXG browser seems to auto-magically strip down web pages makes it easier going.

Not that I am aware of. Unfortunately, what some developers see as an "improvement" is a view not everyone shares. For example, there are very many people who feel that Windows Live Mail in Windows 7 is terrible compared to Windows Mail in Vista.

I once posted that you could not fix the K3 browser font size, but http://www.readingthenet.com/ now provides the feature.

The browser is best for web sites that are optimized for mobile devices and/or text-heavy.

Windows Live Mail is dreadful. It caused me a lot of extra work and lost revenue. Hard to believe MS would include it. Windows 7 is very poor in many ways, particularly Windows Explorer and the Search functions. If it were not for the availability of software, I'd go Linux.

Can you just change the view to landscape? Would that help?
