How to Zoom Element’s Content With CSS

There is change in the display size with varying screen resolutions, so to make your content more readable its a good idea to add a button with the option of zoom in and out. Here we provide a simple example of doing so.

CSS has a zoom property with the help of this property we can zoom any element’s contents. You can give percentage value to this property, for instance, you can zoom contents of an element to 300% using code zoom:300%;. Unfortunately this property is not supported by Firefox, you can use this property only for Internet Explorer version 5.5 or above and some other major browsers. Below we provided a example code showing the to zoom a div to different sizes with the click of the button.
