Using Ctrl+Scroll to Zoom In and Out

I’m sure that everybody knows this, but if you hold the Ctrl key down while you use your pointing device’s scroll feature (wheel or swipe) you can magically zoom in and out!  This works great when the website you’re visiting has teeny print (or print that fills your screen) and appears to also work cross-browser … I’ve tried it on IE9, FireFox and Chrome on my Windows 7 system.  If you press Ctrl+0 (the number zero), the browsers revert to their “standard” zoom level.

I ran across it when I got a new laptop that has a funky glide-pad that was somehow activating the zoom feature all by itself!
