Sometimes it's really nice to zoom in web pages: viewing photos and details or during a presentation performed via your browser.

If you are using Internet Explorer you will notice the zoom icon at the bottom of the browser:


Here's a little trick - using keyboard and mouse shortcuts to quickly Zoom in/out. This applies for IE ,Firefox and Chrome:
  • Press CTRL + the mouse scroll up to zoom in and scroll down to zoom out
  • Using the keyboard press CTRL and + or -
    • So CTRL + (+) to zoom in and CTRL + (-) to zoom out.
    • To set to default: CTRL + 0.

Firefox - Disable/Remove the suggestions of the awesome bar
PortableFirefox - Disable the start-up screen
