  • There is also an option to use the pinch open gesture on the trackpad to zoom in on any web page. It’s pretty simple and works reliably. However, it’s temporary and you will have to do it every time you want to enhance your viewing.
  • One thing worth noting is that Safari also offers you the option to make only the text larger or smaller. To get it done, just click on View menu. Then, you need to press and hold the Option key and select Make Text Bigger or Make Text Smaller. If you wish to read text comfortably, it would be the way to go.
