Pinch zoom is a very interesting feature we use in Smartphones, tablets and other touch-enabled devices. All we need to do is use thumb and index finger to zoom in and out. Now we can use this same feature in Firefox browser using a very interesting add-on “Smart Zoom“. This add-on helps us zoom in and out a webpage the same way we do in smartphones i.e. via pinch zoom or double tap feature.
Instead of using our fingers, we can pinch zoom a webpage on Firefox browser using the mouse cursor. Just press n hold the mouse cursor and the webpage will be zoomed in. Do the same to bring back the webpage in the normal mode.
