Every website is best viewed in large resolutions. There are still some which can be viewed by lower resolutions like 800 x 600. But now, that more and more sites are incorporating web page size greater than the normal 1024 x 768, it’s now time to tweak our browser resolutions to cope up and adopt with the trend.

Let me teach how to change your browser resolutions. I will only tackle about the 3 most popular web browser of today, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and the Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Google Chrome

This is pretty much easy. With just the use of Ctrl combined with the + key, the resolution as well as the text size will go larger. Ctrl and – button will do the opposite. If you want to resume to your normal resolution that is suited for your screen resolution, press CTRL and 0.

Mozilla Firefox

This is the fun part about Firefox, it is very customizable. There is a plug-in wherein you can adjust your browser resolution. There are 3 plugins that you can choose of.

  1. FireSizer
  2. This is pretty popular. When installed, it shows you your resolution at the bootom right of your status bar. Right-clicking on it will give you the option to change size depending on your liking

  3. Yet Another Window Resizer
  4. When installed, right clicking on your bowser screen will bring you a menu to choose what browser resolution to choose. Pretty much easy to use.

  5. ResizeIT
  6. When installed, you will be able to change your browser resolution using shortcut keys. To use this, you need to press the ALT + 1-4 buttons to change the resolution. The four options of resolutions can be personally assigned by the user. A good feature.

Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer has always been hard with customizability. Well I’m still hoping that Microsoft will do something about it. Maybe soon.
To accomplish resizing with Internet Explorer is pretty much the same with Google Chrome. The CTRL buttons combined with the + and – button is the resizing shortcuts for it. The same is true with the CTRL and 0 shortcut key.
