How to Enlarge the Small Fonts Automatically in Safari on Mac
If you are a Safari user on Mac, you can increase the font size in Safari using a keyboard shortcut, ‘Command+Plus (“+”)‘, and to decrease it you can use ‘Command+Minus (“-“)‘ on a website-to-website basis. But if you don’t want to mess around with those settings for every site, Safari lets you increase the font size and it will be applied automatically to all the websites you visit.
This is similar to the Page Zoom feature in Safari. While the zoom feature enlarges both the content and the text, the font size feature keeps the original page formatting and doesn’t affect the media on the page.
