    Ive just invested in a 7in tablet,the google nexus one ,which is bundled with chrome.However its tedious having to zoom in on each page, so that these old eyes can see properly.I tried firefox ,hoping for an extension such as nosquint that may work,but alas nosquint isnt compataible.Opera seemed the smallest of the lot ,and looking throgh the settings of each mobile browser ,i couldnt find one that makes all pages bigger.Maxthon works the best and the displayed page is larger than the others but it was a little buggy where pages tabs would be non responsive.So does anyone know an android browser that will run on nexus 7 and has abilty to load every page automatically at say 150% without me having to gesture or zoom in?.Any browser will do as long as its reliable and has that autozoom function.As i say ive tried chrome,firefox,opera and maxthon,and none quite fit the bill and zoom functions seem to work per page rather than globally.

    Use the default browser of Android

    press the three squares at the right top,

    choose settings

    choose accessibility

    Slide text to desired level

    (On Asus transformer 301 that is)

    I don't think that Opera for Android will automatically zoom like you requested, but I tried a BUNCH of different browsers on my Vizio tablet, and have settled on Opera as the fastest and most useful of the bunch. Right now, Opera mobile does NOT work properly with Outlook.com, so I use the Dolphin browser for that application.

    You can download Chrome and set it to autozoom.

    I've already set tablet >accessibility to large text ,and from what I can see the browsers do the same .....only enlarge parts of text rather than everything on the page.chrome autozoom doesn't auto zoom the whole page (like no squint does for instance) and on wilders chrome only auto zooms part of the page.login for example is tiny even on 200% zoom though when I actually go into a thread the text is large.pictures and icons are still tiny.
