Default Browser Touchscreen -- tap twice to Fit Text to Screen

Please Login to Remove!

I dunno, I thought this was cool enough of the Torch to share, as I only found it by accident after having been with my Torch now for nearing 2 months.

Note that on a webpage in the browser, where the text initially may be too small to read before zoom, and where in zoom the body of text may exceed the width of the screen in order to read without touch-sliding the screen from side-to-side: If you tap twice a body of text, that particular body of text will magically zoom as well as reorganize itself to be read entirely and easily without further zooming or side-sliding. Tap twice again to return to original or scroll, depending on where you tap.

Anyone else know of any other such cool touchscreen shortcuts?

That's cool. Although on some (check Wordpress) sites seemingly it doesn't work on; why I know not :(

That is an awesome feature and I use it continuously.

To zoom in on text, double tap the text. To zoom in on a picture, double tap on the picture. If that picture is still not big enough, double tap the text near by and then scroll to the picture; it will now be nice and big.
