*Client calles me at 7Am*

Client: why did you make everything smaller on my website ?

Me: look at the right side of your URL bar, do you see a minus sign ?

Client: yah, so ?

Me: click on it and set it back to default.

Client: oh ok this is working for me now, will this fix apply globally across the internet

Me: ...

Client: oh I think I asked a stupid question, thanks mate have a good day.

Me: you're welcome...

    @PoweredByCoffee the issue is you can't really blame them especially for this one cuz it's so easy to zoom in and out by mistake especially with touchpads, I think browsers manufacturers didn't consider this UX issue

    @Nedo-the-angry *feature not an issue

    @sheepz the ease of zooming is a feature. The ease of accidental zooming is an issue.

    @elazar This! Macbooks have code to detect accidental vs intentional gestures on their trackpads and it works extremely well.

    Not so much on other laptops. After switching back to a non MBP, my accidental zooms have shot up significantly.

    @secrethash even though calls like that are out of "working hours" I believe situations like this one are good for getting referrals through the client since he likes the service.

    So all in all it's profit but annoying as F***

    Yes it's applied across the internet. Also whatever URL he opens the entire internet sees. So, NO PORN or your mom will know.

    At least the client realizes that he asked a stupid question...
