Have you ever visited a website that has a small text which is hard to read? We often pinch-zoom to magnify the screen layout which makes it difficult to read. But few prominent mobile sites do not allow this and restrict zooming text or pictures while using a mobile browser.
For example: when you launch a Facebook website in the chrome browser instead of the native app. Facebook restricts screen zooming which makes the texts or pictures difficult to view clearly.
This happens on the Twitter mobile site as well. I have been facing this issue whenever I logged in to Twitter on my chrome browser. It made reading and browsing extremely difficult.
To override the restriction on website zoom, we can enable the zoom chrome android. You can just touch-pinch to zoom in chrome on any website after enabling the force zoom feature.
