Can't Read Web Pages Because Font Is Too Small

Is there a way to change the font size for viewing web pages?  I change it in options after the page and hit save but it doesn't seem to change anything.

When page is opened hit the menu button and select "Zoom in" (check the image below):

Zooming in does work...but you have to constantly mess with this for every site.   More importantly (to me, anyway) any changes to font size in the browser - General Properties do absolutely nothing to the fonts displayed in the browser.  I understand the higher resolution of the Tour's display, but there is no site I've found that I didn't have to always zoom in on.

Try to use another browser:

 

OperaMini: http://www.operamini.com

 

BOLT: http://www.getjar.com/products/25910/BitstreamBOLT

Unfortuantely, Opera Mini will not work on the Tour.  Well, it works, but only in http but not in socket mode, which is MUCH faster.  I'm sure this will eventually be fixed.

It's already documented...I didn't discover it first.  It's been on the CrackBerry forums since the day the Tour released.

I think they will fix this issue later.

 

Have you tried BOLT browser ?

Yes...but I will wait for Opera to be fixed :-)  I'm fine with just zooming in for now.
