Set your minimum font size to 32 points and browse the web for a while! Let me know how it feels!

Browsers can set default zoom, not just font size.

Doesn't help. When the zoom factor is big enough, you have to scroll sideways while reading.

Anyway, I have tried a lot of things over the years and nothing even comes close to using a text interface.

To name a few nuisances: controls moving outside of the screen, overlapping elements in web content, unreadable buttons, unclickable input fields, tiny fonts in menus, etc. Nothing of this happens with text interfaces.

Thanks for your input, though!

For reading, consider installing beeline reader (yes the name is stupid-ish), in plugin or bookmarklet form.
