Zooming in and out of a webpage is an extremely convenient feature that allows users to magnify or shrink a page. The feature changes the size of the web page’s various components.
There might be many reasons why one would want to zoom in or out of a web page on the browser. Sometimes the text size is too small to read, and sometimes an image can be viewed better when zoomed in. For easy viewing, users can zoom in or zoom out of a web page.
All browsers allow users to enlarge or reduce the size of the web page and text. It is true for the Brave browser too. So, it does not matter if you have bad eyesight or if the web page is just hard to view; you can zoom in on the page to avoid the frustration of having to squint to see the page.
On the other hand, if a web page is hard to read in its original form and some elements are hard to view/cut off, then zooming out may help. If that does not work for you, then you can use the full-screen mode too.
