Tested on 2013-05-29 using latest nightly.

Having a high resolution screen (Dell XPS 12 or so) I find myself wanting to increase the font size to be able to read without strain.

Could we add an option to increase the font size, for example as part of the settings menu that is displayed when you swipe up to show the navigation bar? I haven't checked what IE does.

1. Go to the
2. Open an article in a new tab.
- Notice the tiny font
3. Try to increase the font size

Expected: There's an easy way to to increase the font and to reset it.

Actual: I couldn't find a way to increase the font size.

Pinch to zoom and double-tap to zoom will be our method of increasing font size. We have stories for those. They are waiting on OMTC and APZC.
