    For most of us, often, most of the web sites we visit are often too big to be displayed entirely on our screens so we often use pinch and zoom a lot if you have a touch screen. I don't know if this is new, but I just discovered that I am able to do the same thing pinch and zoom does but with my keyboard and trackpad. Just press alt+trackball (up to zoom in and down to zoom out)

    I think I prefer using the trackpad to magnify the page, because then it automatically adjusts the texts to fit, rather than scrolling side to side with the touch screen

    So does double tap on text.
    I'm finding that double tap works better for this purpose than the previous method of putting the (+) on text and pressing the trackpad. That method would often result in a partial zoom and would sometimes have to be repeated. And when repeated, it would sometimes zoom back out instead of zooming in and wrapping text.

    One of the things I liked about Opera Mini is that you could move the "square" around, press the trackpad, and text would zoom to the desired size and wrap. It was easy and dependable. In OS 7, double tap is working just as well, so I'm not using Opera Mini much at all anymore. In fact, I may end up deleting it from the phone, since that was my main reason for keeping it around.
