Change Camino and Firefox font sizes via scroll wheel Web Browsers
When viewing a webpage in Camino, hold down the Command key, and then scroll down to increase font size, or scroll up to decrease font size. This allows a more accurate font decrease/increase then Command-Plus or Command-Minus.

I don't know about all the other browsers, but I've tried this in Safari, and it doesn't work. I could not find any Camino documentation on this functionality.

[robg adds: This also works in the recently-released Firefox 1.5.]

Change Camino and Firefox font sizes via scroll wheel

Note that although this does currently work, there's a bug in Camino to turn this off by default, as many users were invoking it accidentally (the bug can be found here). As is currently stands, this behavior can currently be turned on and off manually. To turn if off, go to about:config, and change mousewheel.withmetakey.action to 0
mousewheel.withmetakey.sysnumlines to true.

Thanks for the tip, command-scroll changing the text size of everything has been bugging me for a while now. This fixes it.

Thank you, this was one of the bugs that was keeping me from going to 1.5, even with a clean install.
Now the only problem left is that I can't right click (ctrl-click) on my grouped bookmark folders within the Personal toolbar. This used to work under 1.07

I also disabled the CTRL-Scroll wheel using simular meta tags.

goes to show you if you aren't using a 2 button mouse with a scroll wheel you are missing out on making os x super easy to use. you will be suprised how many things you can do with the right mouse button once you get one.

note to command clickers, "yeah whatever".

This is a standard feature of Mozilla/Firefox and has been for a while. It should work on any platform (i.e. Unix and presumably Windows) using the Ctrl key.

Note however that it doesn't change the size of the images (like Opera does with its Zoom feature).

I just tried this on my Windows 2000 Machine running IE...(I know)... but this worked there as well. Big time saver! Thanks!

Use ctrl-alt-Scrollwheel in Camino (1.0) to change display font sizes.

Or, with a trackpad, CTRL-two-fingers up or down.
