Description Simon Schampijer 2012-07-31 04:48:56 PDT
As seen in many webkit based browsers (ipad browser safari, android browser, chrome) zoom to content is a good feature for small devices with touch support.

Just for reference, in the browsers that already support this feature the usage is as follows: double-tap zooms to content, double-tap in zoomed content zooms out.

This is implemented already in webkit-core [1], so it needs to be added in the API of webkit-gtk. It has been implemented for the QT API [2].

Upstream feature request for the Browser used in the Sugar learning platform [3].
