    Hi everyone,

    Lumia 535 user here. I don't quite like how IE renders all text way too huge (in my opinion) on my devices 5" screen - it could pack much more information in one screen page by allowing smaller font sizes for people with good eyesight, but it doesn't. Therefore I'm looking for alternatives.

    I tried Opera Mini Beta, which allows you to reduce the zoom level from the default 125% down to 100%, which gives me a nice, small font, but it renders the letters rather ugly... of course the 535's low resolution for a five-incher makes this issue worse, but somehow other apps manage to render tiny font sizes much better on my 535 than Opera does.

    So does anyone know if the other browser alternatives are any better in that regard?

    Thanks in advance!

    I know that I can adjust the text size in that menu - but only to make it even larger than it already is! Which is the exact opposite of what I want.

    Two suggestions regarding UC Browser so far, but no mention if it allows a smaller default font size / zoom factor, and if it renders well. Does it?

    Why not just give it a try and see if it suits your needs?

    IE on WP can't render some web pages properly. Opera beta is too slow. UC Browser is the best.
