    We need the zoom on Sunday strips, too

    Especially this strip,where there’s so much lettering to read.

    Some weeks are a lot worse.

    You ought to try it with my eyes! I never read this strip unless I’ve got at least half an hour.

    Hold down the CONTROL KEY and use the scroll wheel on your mouse and you can zoom in or out at least on my Firefox browser you can.

    The keystrokes don’t really do a good job as a replacement for a much larger resolution image. Strips that use a lot of text or detail in the image need to have zoom active with a “real” higher resolution image available. Otherwise, it is a waste of time to come read them.

    I think it depends on who distributes them. All the Creators Syndicate comics offered by GoComics, have the zoom feature. Universal Uclick comics don’t.

    The GoComics webpage for each Creators Syndicate comic includes a link to that comic’s webpage on creators.com, which also has the Zoom feature, and perhaps GoComics makes use of that.

    You possibly couldn’t care less about this, but the One Big Happy strip is, for reasons baffling to me, a couple years behind on GoComics, where the Zoom is disabled. But if you display that archived comic on its creators.com webpage, it has the Zoom feature there.

    Rather than a Zoom feature, today’s Cul de Sac and Doonesbury (and perhaps others) could at present benefit from a Shrink feature.

    GoComics screwed up today’s weekly FoxTrot by making it ***huge***. I tried to copy it out to where I could shrink it, but some Yahoo popup seems to be preventing that. I’m changing my AppleScript to show a different URL for FoxTrot.

    Second the motion. The Sunday edition is always too detailed to read without the zoom.
