Zoom behavior when doing pinch gesture on touchpad feels very odd. On old-style desktop side it works in the better way.

What device are you testing on? I tried on a surface pro but the touch pad there doesn't trigger zoom.
A laptop with Windows 8.
morphing: we don't want the old fashioned text zoom available to users in metrofx. So we need to track down whatever controls it (hopefully a single pref) and turn it off.

We'll also need to file bugs on getting the input methods that trigger text zoom hooked up to apzc zoom.

Attached patch Patch v1Splinter Review
Tweaking zoom prefs to disable text zoom. Bug 917513 is about hooking up APZ zooming which will make this much nicer.

Lets add a comment there explaining that old-school text zoom is depreciated in favor of apzc zoom.
