This is a problem I have been having for ages. I do not fancy the current '2-finger zoom' on trackpad to make websites bigger on Safari. I instead would love to have the '2-finger zoom' affect that Chrome provides - whereby the page's format is preserved, while at the same time, the whole webpage appears larger. (If you could understand what I mean).
Chrome also saves the state of the zoomed webpage even after closing and re-launching the application. For example if I click ('Command' '+' '+') on (AppleInsider.com) to double zoom the page and when I close the webpage or exit Chrome ; upon relaunching, Chrome saves/remembers my last zoom setting on (AppleInsider.com). Remembering the saved state of the web browser zoom is a very useful feature and I'm sure many others would agree with me.
Users don't have to re-click 'Command' '+' '+' each time a webpage is launched and that will allow for a beautiful browsing experience !
Two of the solutions I describe below, remembers the saved zoom state of a webpage but they aren't perfect :
I have tried an extension called 'AllPagesZoom' - the problem is, when a webpage is launched, the zoomed webpage appears hacked and there are restrictions to zoom percentages.
I have tried CSS code on Safari but it only enlarges the text but the images aren't resized according to proportion. Chrome has a perfect zooming capability but unfortunately I feel - with Mountain Lion, Safari 6 integrates much better and I need to use Safari.
It will be really nice if the community has a solution to Safari's zooming problem or even any other ideas not mentioned above.
Thanks for your time.
Well if one product gives you what you want and the other doesn't ....... !

I'm not completely understanding what you are saying, but you can always "Command" + "+" to make the page larger. The page isn't altered in any way, except that it's magnified.
