The Site's Text Size

Stephen, thanks for doing such an amazing job on the site. I really like the layout and new capabilities of the site. The only thing that I would comment on, is the text size throughout the site. I find it a bit small. I don't know whether other people feel this way, but it seems to take more effort to read and has less impact just in terms of presentation. If I am the only one who feels this way, then please disregard the comments. But I am not sure about that. Either way, thanks again for all your efforts.

-Charles

Hey Charles,

Thank you for the kind words.

The text size is a concern. However, this is something that can easily be controlled through your browser for all webpages.

If you are using Apple Safari then

Or page zoom to 125 -150% it works a treat and Chrome seems to remember too, every time I click on Solarchat it automatically zooms up now :)

also-
almost all browsers will now zoom in and out with your mouse if you have a scroll wheel that you use to move the page up and down

if you hold the control button, it will control zoom also
