Modern browsers, including nearly every mobile browser in Android and iOS, no longer support scaling the text separately and rely on the "Zoom" feature exclusively.

it's absurd to have a site with tiny text. even the w3c recognized the tendency of web designers to make stupidly small text and put out an advisory telling people to use 1.0em for your text size! pipedot is in denial that it's an issue is and it's stupid. pipedot's response to this issue is effectively WORKSFORME WONTFIX!

Not sure what all the anger is about. Pipedot was readable before, generally (certainly more readable than Soylent, anyway with its tiny little buttons). Just experimented in Chrome and the Zoom feature not only scales up the text but when it reaches a certain size, the 'responsive' feature of the CSS kicks in and the sidebar gets shunted off to the bottom, like it should.

I for one am impressed.

I will second that, noting that when past UI changes caused a problem with mobile display Brian fixed it within a day. If you see a bug in Pipedot then report it:
