10.4: Control zoom level when viewing PDFs in Safari Web Browsers
I've been looking for a way to zoom in and out of PDF documents when they are previewed in Safari. And I found the way in the comments on this site...

Just control-click in Safari's window while previewing a PDF, and you will get access to a menu which includes zooming in and out, opening in Preview.app, and basic navigation. I suppose some people will find it obvious, but I think it deserves its own hint.

Wow, we must be running out of decent hint submissions when basic contextual menu hints are being published. Time for a new OS update to get things rolling again.

It's funny, but I really had to go and search on google to find this. Because I was used to Windows Acrobat Reader which added its menus to browser menus. And that's what I've been looking for to no avail. It's obvious when you know how to do something, but if I got stuck on this small thing I'm sure there's somebody else as well.

You can right-click and press "auto-size", does anyone know how to make this the default behavior of Preview.app inside safari?

Thanks!

I still think it is a real hint, because these hints are not just for you - experienced users. It's also for the people who make transitions to Mac OS from other systems.
