Even with some glitches, this unique browser plug-in is so slick that it's a shame only users of the Maxthon browser can utilize it. WheelZoom allows you to zoom in and out of Web pages and images with the roll of a mouse wheel. The freeware places a graphic magnifying-glass button atop your Maxthon browser, giving you quick access to its functions. Image and Page WheelZoom allow you to increase or decrease the area or image in view. You'll know that a certain area is "zoomable" if your mouse cursor changes upon hovering over it. We were amazed by how WheelZoom was able to effectively enlarge and minimize Web pages and Web images, though we noticed that it didn't immediately zoom in or out as we instructed. WheelZoom snubs more popular browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla, and Opera. Nonetheless, Maxthon users who need this type of functionality will find this freeware valuable.
WheelZoom makes images or pages zoom in or out with the mouse wheel. The zoom is shown in the status bar. Press CTRL and turn wheel to return to 100%. Active WheelZoom is indicated by a resize cursor when the cursor is over an image or page. Launch WheelZoom again to inactivate it.
