Css zoom property
« on: January 10, 2007, 12:01:28 pm »

I'm kind of confused  :/

According to this article, the folowing code should work:

Code: [Select]
<body style="zoom:0.5">But it does not! what did I missed?  :|

Using Safari(mac osx), IE 7(win), Opera(both)

As far as I know support for the zoom property is almost non-existant in many browsers.  Sure wish I could find you a good support chart.

Here is a support chart for CSS. It looks like crap but you get the point.

Yeah that does look like crap  :P  also, neither of those charts have the "zoom" property.

I thought this was suspicious, and then upon finding this here page...

I found out that "zoom" is actually a proprietary Microsoft property, (not part of the W3C spec) which explains why it never works outside of IE, and isn't listed on these support charts.

FWIW, this is a much better chart, and is easier to follow too:

That was how MS tried to assert their dominance in the browser wars, the thing is it is now back firing on them. More and more browsers and web designers and adhering to the standard and specifications.
