    How to magnify web page?

    Is there a third party tool to instantly magnify a web page at the press of a button or right click perhaps?
    The windows magnifier is a pain to use. I just want to magnify the whole page

    Some web pages ahve such fine text which is not affected by " View- Text size- Change" option in IE6

    Magnifier is a simple tool to magnify the area under your mouse cursor. It supports up to 50x magnification and offers a resizable magnification area, as well as an optional grid overlay.

    Thanks but from the decsription I think it magnifies only the area around the mouse cursor. I need the whole web page magnified.
    I found Bigshot magnifier but it costs a lot:

    "and offers a resizable magnification area"

    I would just use the one built into XP...

    Install the Maxthon browser, similar to IE but it gives you lots more options. Under the view tab it allows you to zoom web pages up to 200%. BJ

    firefox

    download/install mozilla's firefox web brower
    it allows a greater magnification instantly
    press/hold ctrl and press + till you get size you want

    course you should be able to use the ole mouse wheel trick of holding ctrl and pushing the mouse wheel forward a few clicks
