This is another one of those “one trick ponies” that make life just a little bit better! Most all of us have muttered (some even cussed) when the words on our web browser are too small to read -- at least without a lot of wrangling with our resolution settings.

This little Internet Explorer add-on allows you to magnify any HTML page as you browse the web. Once you apply this easy little assistant, a + and - sign will appear on your browser tool bar. Click either and --Shazam - the page immediately appears exactly the way you wish.

This pony is quick, easy, handy -- and best of all it’s on the house!
