    Does the WebOS browser not support increase/decrease text size commands?? (like FireFox, IE, every other browser I know....)

    cue the ' there's a patch for that'.... Check preware patches, can't recall exact name off the top of my head (or maybe I can?) reduce font size 10px or something like that?

    Ummm, I didn't mean permanently - I meant dynamically. As in "press Sym and '+' to increase text size", etc. So far, almost every website I've visited has been unreadable. Yes, you can 'pinch-to-zoom' but then you're back to trying to read the New York Times through a toilet paper roll.

    I'm guessing that the answer is 'no', I'm just finding it hard to believe....

    Aren't both browsers built on a common Webkit codebase?

    That may be true but android browsers has text reflow with the ability to adjust text size to fit the screen as you zoom in and out and you can also adjust text in the setting from small, normal and large...no panning back in forth to read like the Pre.

    One of the main reasons I use the Camino browser on MacOS is that is the only browser I am aware of that supports dynamic text re-sizing. This is even more important for a small screen phone.
    Pilot Pro -> Pilot Vx -> Kyocera 7135 -> Treo 650 -> Treo 680 -> Pre -> Pixi Plus -> Pre2 + TouchPad -> BB 9930 -> Pre3+ Playbook
    Verizon -> Cingular -> ATT -> Sprint -> Verizon -> ATT

    I think it increases it enough when you turn it to landscape. But having the text re-size and fit the screen like the android would be nice!
