How to make the text in your Mac’s browser zoom out

Do you want that text to enlarge in front of you? Yes, that’s the one next to your delete key. Hold down the Command key (look to the left of your space bar) and hit the Plus symbol at the same time. By doing this, the text will enlarge to fill your browser window.
