Zooming in Safari 5 maintains page positioning
Authored by: lsequeir on Jun 15, '10 07:00:23AM

I had wished for this for a while, especially in somewhat long pages.
Unfortunately, this (very desirable) behavior is apparently not always as it should. There is a situation where it actually works *worse* than Safari 4: when using an address that contains a target somewhere inside a page.

Take an address like this: http://www.macintouch.com/readerreports/iphone_touchplatform/index.html#d14jun2010
(this points to the comments on June 14, i.e. near the end of a long page with comments posted by date)

In Safari 4, if I zoom immediately after opening the page, it stays on the target, letting me read the June 14 comments with a font size appropriate for older eyes.

In Safari 5, it shifts wildly off the target (actually, it works more or less like Safari 4 did on most pages - or indeed in this same page, if I scroll a bit before zooming...)

So, at least on some cases (this is not the only example) the behavior is less than perfect. Somehow it is better in same pages, worse in others.
