Sorry if I'm noising up the bug, and if this is made obvious somewhere (I missed it), but a user left this comment on reddit:

> It's the only browser that is good for visually impaired people as you can change the size of the font for menus and favorites. If it goes away then I would be stuck with using a magnifying glass with chrome or IE/edge.

And I was wondering if this is accounted for in the current planned feature set.

Yes, we are discussing how we could implement zooming. Whether this is defined by the theme or in the preferences of the browser is still undecided.
