I wish Mozilla would borrow Opera's idea of having a built-in magnifier.
Hit the + key.. whole site is magnified Very, very useful. Does nothing for
flash, or some other stuff, but works wonderfully with regular fonts &

Does the Bank of America site have small fonts on your screen?  I have
to wonder what they were thinking to use 65% fonts.

I used to have a minimum font set in Mozilla and Firefox for just this
reason.  And yes, I know about user style sheets.  BoA's response
about the fonts was to set my browser to use larger fonts -- but why
not let people make them smaller if they want, not larger?  What
percent of users know how to make their fonts show larger?  Oh, it's
so painful to watch my eighty-year-old dad "use" the web.  Remember
the computer screens in the movie Brazil?  Nice external magnifying
glass.  (Hey, and idea to rush out and patent!)
