Mr, tablet, and Chrome

I'm currently using Firefox on my tablet to view MR so I can change the font size and forums expand to the full width of the screen.

I'd like to use Chrome, but the font size is too small. I changed the setting to make the font larger and overide zooming of font, but no luck.

Is there anyway to get chrome to work like Firefox.

Thanks.

And now that I've posted, I see that the posts' font is larger, but everything else in the forum is too small. How can I basically get everything the same size text in chrome?

darn.


I really want to use chrome because I like the location of the back button.

What ever happened to the good old days when toolbars were customizable?

On a Windows machine, running Chrome, hold down the Control key and push the wheel on your mouse forward. The whole page's fonts expand. And Chrome appears to "remember" where you left it for the next time.

Alternately, use the little + sign inside a magnifying glass on the right end of the address box to open up a dialog for zoom amount.

Or, finally, click the three vertical dots on the far upper right of Chrome (where various Settings are), and select Zoom from the menu items there.

They still are if you use Firefox.

I was thinking of Firefox for Windows. I cannot do it on Firefox for iOS. But then, I do like where the back arrow is there.

I don’t know which forum software MR uses, but I’ve encountered similar looking forums that seem to use it too. It doesn’t seem to have been designed for tablets, much less smartphones. It is okay for computers I guess, but it really leaves a lot to be desired for use on tablets and phones. I’ve tried using Safari, Firefox, and Chrome browsers on my iPad and all show this forum site about the same. The text is way too small for my old eyes. Of course I can change the browser and iPad settings to improve it, but then that messes up most other websites I go to. Typing in threads, as I am right now, is the worst as I get even smaller text and that makes seeing harder and editing nearly impossible. In my opinion, MR should explore switching to a more modern forum software that works with tablets and phones too.
