Manuel's quick explainer "Please, stop disabling zoom" includes a tip for Android Chrome/Firefox users I didn't know.
You might know that you can disable pinch-to-zoom on mobile devices using an evil
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1, user-scalable=no">
But did you know that you can overwrite this
meta element and force Chrome and Firefox to allow pinch-to-zoom?
Now you do. 😉
Thanks Manuel for sharing this little detail. I'm happily zooming everywhere on my Android device now!
