This post is a note that includes my thoughts about something I found online. Check it out yourself!

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 element.

<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?

Chrome and Android settings to enforce pinch-to-zoom

Now you do. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanks Manuel for sharing this little detail. I'm happily zooming everywhere on my Android device now!
