Default Browser zoom

Might be a stupid question...I come from a long line of moto droids. On all of them, if I double tap in the browser, not only would it zoom, but it would also realign the now larger text to fit the screen. Is there a way to do that on the Samsungs? I hate coming in a news article then have to swipe side to side to read all the words

These are not the Droids you are looking for
Please note, I do not do ROM support via PM. If you have a question, ask in the device thread. Thanks.

Is that a moto only thing? Or browser can't do that?

Are you running stock browser on 4.3 or a custom rom? There's dozens of browsers to try though, I'm sure one will meet your needs.

In running beans 22 rom. Stock browser. Over the years I've fiddled with nearly every browser it there and I've always found the stock the most comfortable. Maybe that's because the zoom always worked the way I wanted it to.

I last used the stock browser when I first bought the phone. Been using Dolphin browser ever since. When I double tap, it zooms in enough to fit the block of text that you double tapped on. It is useful in that it depends on where you tap it
