I was getting close to selling my N8 before Anna, now it is like a new, fast, friendly machine. well done Nokia - are you sure you want to get tied up with Microsoft?

...This is what the geekzone forums look like for me - bearing in mind that the pixel density on your monitor might not be the same, so you might need to scale this image a little, to get a more realistic idea.

Unfortunately I don't have a "before" screenshot, but it was quite readable...


Have dredged this thread up again in case this rescaling thing is still of interest.

The answer from Nokia is in post 8 in http://discussions.europe.nokia.com/t5/Nseries-and-Symbian-Smartphones/Symbian-Anna-Pinch-zoom-not-working/td-p/1118251 .

It is a web site choice whether mobile optimised web pages are user scalable or not. 


Interesting, because the N9 doesn't seem to have this problem (no, I don't have an N9, but I touched one once). The N9 browser is quite usable on http://m.geekzone.co.nz/

I would not call it a problem of the Symbian^3 phones but rather one of the web site admin - it is their call as to whether their site is user scalable or not - the phones are just supporting the tag correctly.

From what you say the N9 browser in Meego must not support the user scalable metatag yet. There seem to be a number of temporarily missing  features in the N9's firmware - maybe the browser will be updated at the same time as those in a future firmware update.

The N9 definitely supports the User Scalable tag (take a look at the HTML5 results for it on Google -- it has the highest HTML5 support of any released mobile browser). It may not have been present at the time you got a sneak preview of it, but it's definitely there now.
 
That said, I'm not sure if Geekzone supports it properly, or is turning it on for some clients and not others. The N9 allows me to scale Geekzone's mobile site, but not Google's for example. Also Geekzone serves a reasonable font size to the N9 but a ridiculously small font size to Anna.
 
 Geekzone Mobile is in beta after all.

Just checked and find that m.geekzone.co.nz is now scalable for me on an Anna N8 so I assume the tag has been changed?

I agree, the font is very small and I think it is smaller than it used to be?
